p.2 The Anawan - The schooner Anawan, Capt. Herring, which was capsized off Pultneyville on Monday night, was towed into our harbor yesterday morning, by the steamer Howard, Capt. Johnson, with the aid of the brig Champlain. The cook, a lad of this city, by the name of James McGrath, was found drowned in the forecastle. There were, altogether, six persons on board of the Anawan at the time of the disaster, 5 of the crew, and one passenger. The body of the boy is the only one discovered. The vessel has not yet been pumped out, and it is possible other bodies may be found on board. In the absence of any further information, it is feared that all on board of the Anawan have perished.
