IN A YAWL. -- Capt. James O'Brien, of the schooner Agnes, reported last night that when nine miles out, he passed a yawl containing what he supposed to be he crew of some wrecked vessel. He threw them a rope when passing, but it failed to reach them, and as they appeared to be doing well he made no further attempt at assistance till his arrival here, when a tug was sent out to meet them. the party, however, came ashore six miles below the city, before the tug reached them.
They proved to be the crew of the schooner Olivia, capsized, belonging to E.W. Rathbun & Co. When the vessel went over, a boy who was in the cabin must have been drowned.
