The schr. ANTARES, wrecked in the storm two weeks ago, was built in 1852 at Cattaraugus, N.Y., by A. Stevens, and was therefore 31 years old. Her name has not appeared on the Lloyd's register since 1879, at which time she was marked "not insurable." It is a mystery how men could be found to risk their lives on the old tub.
