Schooner Foundered

Last Sunday afternoon between two and three o’clock the propeller Milwaukee which had left this port but a short time before, was seen by persons on the shore to turn around and take in tow a vessel which was evidently endeavoring to reach this harbor. In a short time after the propeller, with her tow, had headed for this port, the schooner was seen to disappear off Ford Shoals, and the propeller headed up the lake again and was soon lost to sight. The attention of many persons was attracted by the strange proceeding and up to this morning there was no clue to it.

The morning dispatches explain the matter that the Milwaukee found the schooner Meteor in a sinking condition and started with her in tow to Oswego, but has gone but a short distance when the schooner went down. The crew was landed at Port Dalhousie yesterday.

The Meteor was built in Wilson in 1861, and registered 61 tons. She received repairs in 1873, rated B1, was valued at $2,000 and hailed from Montreal. She was probably grain laden from Toronto or Oakville, but who she was consigned to is unknown here at present.
