p.2 The Buffalo Commercial Advertiser of Monday says:

The steamer Mississippi, on her down trip Saturday evening, picked up seven persons in a small boat, about 20 miles off Cleveland. They proved to be the officers and crew of the schooner William Penn, belonging to Kingston, and loaded with lumber. The schooner sprung a leak and capsized on the day previous, and the poor fellows had been drifted about, without any one to assist them, or a mouthful of food ever since. They were kindly provided for by the officers and passengers of the Mississippi.
