Schooner Rapid Lost - Intelligence has been received of the loss of the schooner Rapid, owned by Capt. Harbottle, of Hamilton. She went to Port Elgin, on Lake Huron, and took on board a cargo of wheat, for Messrs. Brown & Gillespie of that city, but bad weather coming on, it appears she was unable to leave. During a high wind she parted from her moorings, and the last accounts say she was going to pieces, the crew having got off safely. There was an insurance on the cargo but none on the vessel. The Rapid was the vessel which sunk at the Marine Railway in this harbor about two years ago. She was then raised at great expense and trouble.
