WRECK OF A VESSEL. -- The schooner BRITANIA, of Port Ryerse, bound for Port Stanley with a cargo of salt, on Wednesday attempted to make Port Burwell harbor, when she was struck by a squall and driven against the east pier, and immediately sunk, leaving but two feet of her hull above water. Both vessel and cargo will prove a total loss. She is owned by Foster & Ryerse, and was insured. The wreck will prove no hinderance to other vessels seeking that port in bad weather. -- Detroit Adv.
