WRECK OF THE LILLY
      Mr. Hartley came in port last night and reports the loss of his vessel, "The Lilly" of Penetanguishene, which was wrecked on the rocks at the entrance of Tupper Murrey harbour at the eastern entrance of Lake Huron.
      We understand that some time last week Mr Hartley being laden with salt and goods from Detroit, for Penetanguishene, entered Ship Channel in the night time, and struck on a sunken rock in the middle of the channel between the Isle of Coves and Cat Island, which sprung a leak in his vessel. He succeeded in getting off and repaired in a small harbour in the Isle of Cove.
After getting under sail again the wind died away and the dead swells carried him as before stated on the rocks at the entrance of Tupper Murrey harbour, making a total wreck.
This sunken rock in ship channel is marked on Bayfield's chart, drawn some fifteen years ago; reference thereto may prevent damage hereafter.
      Owen Sound Comet.
