Further Intelligence of the Moira - Eight female passengers, en route for Belleville, were landed on "The Ducks" by the lifeboat of the propeller Moira shortly after the discovery of her leaky condition. Three of the crew, and the Captain of the Moira (McIntosh), were afterwards picked up by the West. The rest of the crew, and some other passengers, are supposed to have been taken on board a schooner bound for Oswego. The Moira filled rapidly after the springing of her leak, which was occasioned by a fracture of the woodwork in the vicinity of her screw. Her hull is entirely underwater, but Messrs. Calvin and Breck, of Garden Island, have despatched one of their tugs to see what can be done with her. The accident occurred near the Islands called "The Ducks," known by mariners as the "Real Ducks," as distinguished from others called the "False Ducks."
