Loss Of The LYDIA ANN. - The schooner LYDIA ANN, Rogers, master and owner, left this port a week ago Monday morning with a cargo of 136 tons of coal for Mr. C.A. Payne, of Ogdensburgh. On Thursday, Mr. Payne received a dispatch, stating that the vessel had gone ashore at Stony Point, and both vessel and cargo would prove a total loss.
The LYDIA ANN left her winter quarters at Charlotte, early in April, and was the first vessel on the lake in the Spring. On her way down the lake she was caught in a gale, and, April 4th, put in here in distress, having lost her mate, Vance, overboard. She was also one of the last vessels cleared from here this season, and seems to have been doomed to misfortune.
