SCHOONER LOST - Capt. A. McFee of the schooner Bell McFee with a cargo of 10, 000 bushels of wheat, from Messrs. Ross Bro. Of Leith, while on her way to this port on Sunday morning last, was caught in an ice shove, which stove in some of her planks, throwing her on her beam ends, carrying away her mast and fore-rigging. She immediately settled in about 20 fathoms of water. The crew had scarcely time to take to the boats. They arrived in Meaford during the morning, almost exhausted from cold and exposure. The Belle McFee was owned in the Sound by Mr. A. McFee father of the captain, and was valued at $10, 000. Insured for six. The cargo was also, we learn, fully insured.
