Full Text

Painesville, O., Nov. 14. -- The schooner H. A. LAMARS capsized off Fairport Harbor Saturday night. She now lies on her side, close on the piers, and should the wind continue, she will be a total wreck by morning. Her crew were taken off by the life-saving men. The tug URANIA pulled on her this afternoon, but with no success, any more than to pull her bow round to the westward. The LAMARS was built at Fairport, and from appearances has come home to die. From the way the wreck now lies, vessels should be cautious in entering the harbor.

Fairport, O., Nov. 15. -- The scow H. A. LAMARS went to pieces during the gale last night. Not a remnant of the wreck remains to be seen. Parties are searching the beach for any portion of her that may be of value.
