The Britton, of Gananoque, Sprang A Leak.

Gananoque, Oct. 17th - The coal schooner Britton, owned by Reeve C.E. Britton, of this town, commanded by Capt. Ferrington of Napanee, met with a thrilling experience the latter part of the week. After leaving Oswego with a cargo of some 300 tons she sprang a leak, requiring a continuous manning of her pumps, but successfuly put into Sackett's Harbor. On Saturday afternoon Mr. Britton got a relief party together, and with the goverment tug Beaver, went to Sackett's Harbor, he and his son going by way of Watertown. They found the schooner in condition to be removed and the tug brought her into port about three o'clock yesterday afternoon. She pulled into Gananoque river to unload, after which necessary repairs will be made.
