A VESSEL CAPSIZED - NARROW ESCAPE OF THE CREW. -- During the squall yesterday morning the sloop THOMPSON was capsized four miles off Spring lake. Her crew clung to the bottom for some time, and were in an exhausted condition when found by the tug ST. MARY, which chanced to pass near them. But for this timely assistance the men would soon have perished.
