Mysterious Disappearance of a Vessel. On Thursday, the 26th of May last, the North Carolina, a vessel engaged in the lumber business, left the port of Black Creek, in this county, with a cargo of white oak ties, a crew of six men, and two pasengers. The Captain of the Holt reported seeing the North Carolina about ten milesfrom shore, opposite Poin Sauble [sic], the next day. A squall arose soon after, which lasted a half an hour, after which he saw nothing more of her. It is feared all are lost. - G. Haven Clarion.
