Cleveland, July 18. -- A telegram from Ashtabula states that the large schooner VERONA was run into and sunk just outside the harbor this morning by the large propeller CAMBRIA. A heavy northeast gale was blowing, and the VERONA drifted across the CAMBRIA's bow. No lives were lost. The schooner SUPERIOR is hard aground near Fairport. Her crew have not yet been rescued, but there is no immediate danger to their safety.
