The Wrecked Conqueror
The iron side wheel tug conqueror, which sunk opposite Fishers landing while towing eh schooner Pride of America up the St. Lawrence, is still lying just as she went down. Her owners the Messrs. Folger Bros., of Kingston are endeavoring to get a permit to raise her with Canadian, presumably Kingston wrecking apparatus. Her pilot house is partly out of water, but it is thought she will be raised with little difficulty.
The loss of the Benicia Boy.
The sloop Benicia Boy of Sackets Harbor, which went to pieces by pounding against the dock at Cape Vincent was anchored near Carlton island. She dragged her anchor and the crew finally got it up and made for the dock. She struck the dock with terrific force and immediately went to pieces. The crew saved themselves by making "pier head" jumps.
