SCHOONER ADA MEDORA GOES TO PIECES.
      Small Portion of her Cardo Saved.
      Sandsucker SANDY HOOK Sinks in Harbor.
      After a terrific beating in the winds and waves of the wild gale which prevailed yesterday, the old schooner ADA MEDORA, which was on the rocks at Donnelly's pier, since Saturday night, finally succumbed and is no more. Nothing much can be seen of her now, and portions of the wreck and all of her lumber cargo have floated away from the scene, and nothing is left to mark the spot where she went down. An attempt was made yesterday to lighter her cargo, but upon arrival of the tugs and lighter, it was seen that she could not last long.
      The wind yesterday caught very few unawares. Every craft in the harbor, with one exception, was made perfectly safe the night previous. The old sandsucker SANDY HOOK was unequal to the storm and sank in the harbor, where she now lies with her only mast sticking out of the water a few feet.

      MEDORA'S LUMBER CARGO STRUNG ALONG WALL.
The lumber cargo of the wrecked schooner ADA MEDORA, is for the most part scattered along the wall off Georgia street, and guards are watching it. About 40,000 feet was lightered onto the sandsucker SANDY HOOK, which sunk. It is understood that George Pfohl has bought the cargo as salvage, and an attempt will be made today to secure the lumber off the sandsucker.
