LOSS OF THE ANGUS MORRISON
      We are sorry to have to report the loss of this schooner. It appears she was out on the evening of the 21 inst. somewhere between Saugeen and Malta, and was suddenly struck by a most severe gale, damaging her rudder, and throwing her on her beam ends and rendering her wholly unmanageable.
      The captain and owner Matthew Watt and two hands, had to lash themselves to the rigging, and for 8 hours in that state suffered the merciless peltings of the storm. At daylight she struck on the bleak shore, where all hands succeeded in making a landing and had to walk five miles to the first house, where they were treated kindly.
      The schooner, we fear will be a complete loss. Most of the cargo, consisting of fish, was washed ashore and picked up. The schooner belongs to this port, and was insured in the British American for $900.
