Buffalo Daily Courier Friday, November 10, 1854 #
WRECK OF THE SCHOONER CAYUGA. – The Toronto Patriot, of yesterday, informs us that this schooner, of and bound for Oswego, with a cargo of wheat, was driven ashore between Long Point and the Duck’s, in the gale of wind on Monday night last. A small boat was launched, which was immediately upset, and a considerable time elapsed before it was got righted again. On Tuesday, about 2 o’clock, the PASSPORT, on her way to this city from Kingston, came in close proximity to the disabled schooner, and her situation was observed by those on board. The Captain of the PASSPORT immediately rendered every assistance in his power, and although the storm was raging at a fearful rate, he succeeded in rescuing the Captain from his perilous position, the crew having effected their escape by means of the boats. The schooner is a total wreck, and very little hopes are entertained of saving the cargo.

It is supposed that a considerable part of the cargo of wheat on the CAYUGA ashore on the Canadian side will be saved without damage. The vessel is reported to have but three feet of water in her hold and may be got off without material damage.
