p.3 Shipwreck and Loss of Life - The schr. Ceres, Capt. Morris, which sailed from port for Sandusky on the 14th of August, was lost on Lake Erie in the gale of the 23d of the same month. The Ceres was owned by Messrs. Lansing & Weed of this village, and had a cargo of merchandise, salt and pig iron. She was insured for £1750, with no insurance on her cargo. There were six men on board of her including the captain, all of whom must have perished without a solitary witness to the melancholy catastrophe. Five bodies recognized as belonging to the vessel, have been picked up near Grand River, among which were those of Wm. S. Black, mate, and J. Coolidge, cook. [Oswego Herald]
