-Loss of a Schooner - The schooner Dan Williams, which left Oswego on the 29th ult. with a cargo of hop-poles for Napanee was caught in a heavy gale and ran for South Bay, but on passing the gap she was swamped by a heavy sea rolling over her. A young man named Vanalstine who was asleep in the hold was drowned. The remainder of the crew, 5 in number, clung to the vessel till she drifted near shore when they let down the yawl and landed in safety. The schooner is a total loss.

(Note: sch. Mary Gormley built by Tait at Picton in Aug. 1863 on bottom of Dan Williams according to 1875 Underwriters Registry - ed.)
