p.3 Hard Lines - The Clayton Independent reports: Last week the scow Caesar of Kingston, started from here to Bartlett Point for a load of gravel for Kingston. After being loaded the trip up the river was attempted twice, but the increasing gale drove her back into the bay where she remained until Thursday morning. The crew consisted of nine men. The next evening several of the number came ashore in a yawl boat half filled with ice, with the use of one oar only. The yawl sunk a few moments after. No provisions could be conveyed to the scow until next morning. The scow left for Kingston Friday morning.
