A dispatch from Picton, Ont., says: "The schooner PERSIA foundered last night opposite Point Peter light, about six miles out in 200 feet of water. All hands were saved. She was stone laden from Kingston to Toronto, commanded by Capt. David O'Hagan, and owned by D. W. Allison, M. P., and the captain." The PERSIA is an old schooner of 92 tons register. She was built in 1855 and valued at $800.
