Sunk - The Canadian schooner Shannon which left Oswego on Friday for Gananoque with coal, sprung a leak 20 miles off Oswego and sank in deep water. The crew reached the shore in the yawl. She is a small vessel of 69 tons, and was built at Dog Lake on the Rideau Canal, 1867. One half of the vessel was owned by the Captain, which is insured. There was no risk on the cargo.
