The schooner Jamaica Capsized and Sunk on Lake Huron
We learn from a telegram received from Falls River, Michigan, that the schooner Jamaica, Capt. D. Bouthwell, was struck by a squall yesterday afternoon, about 1 o'clock, capsized and sunk in seven fathoms of water, twenty miles below Point Aux Barque, Lake Huron. The crew were all saved excepting the cook a woman.
The Jamaica was owned by Ald. M. M. Wheeler, built in 1867, classed A1 valued at $22,000, and insured for $18,000, $10,000 with the Aetna,$4,000 with the Phoenix and $4,000 in Detroit Fire and Marine. She cleared from Milwaukee June 17th , for this port, with 18,000 bushels of wheat, for Jenkins Hover & Co. The wheat is insured for $28,000 in Cincinnati companies. As she lays in but seven fathoms of water, efforts will be made to raise her.
