p.3 The Schooner Ballard Sunk - All Hands Lost - By special telegram from Sackett's Harbor, per Provincial Line, we learn of the loss of the schooner M. Ballard, of Detroit, laden with wheat from Chicago, bound to Ogdensburg. The M. Ballard went ashore on Friday last, about noon, on the Galoo Island Reef, about a mile and a quarter north-west of the light-house. The vessel beat over the shoal and went down at the east end of the reef, in deep water, with all hands. The crew consisted of the captain and ten men. Up to the present only 3 of the bodies have been recovered. The M. Ballard was built in Cleveland in 1855, and is consequently an old vessel, though still classed for carrying grain.
