CROSTHWAITE BURNED TO THE WATER'S EDGE
      Crew of Steamer [sic,] Narrowly Escaped Death in the Flames
Sault Ste Marie, Nov. 14. -- The schooner WILLIAM CROSTHWAITE was burned to the water's edge while lying at anchor near Whitefish Point last night. The vessel is a total loss.
      When the fire broke out her crew of six men were at supper and barely had time to launch the life-boat and get clear of the schooner, before the craft was wrapped in flames. No effort could be made to check the progress of the fire, and the schooner was totally destroyed.
      It is supposed the fire was caused by an overheated stove in the galley.
