The three-masted schooner PAISLEY, from Erie in ballast, ran on the Horseshoe Reef, just outside the breawater at Buffalo yesterday, and it is believed she will be a total loss. The crew were saved. The vessel was owned by Capt. James Davidson, and was built at Bay City, Mich., in 1893. She rated A 1 and had a valuation of $33,000. She carried no insurance.
