The schooner FLEETWING arrived this morning with coal for Swift from Fairhaven. Capt. Shaw states that enroute for Fairhaven last Tuesday they saw the wreck of the schooner OCEAN WAVE and ran close alongside. Contrary to the statements of others he saw that the yawl boat was not tied to her stern, in fact the wrecked vessel had been washed away by the seas. (details of vessel’s history and of her captain, Brokenshire, not taken)

The Capt. of the tug PROCTOR reports that off the Ducks he passed a quantity of wreckage which he thought was the stern of the OCEAN WAVE; and shortly after passed a quantity of broken lath, etc. Old sailors think that there is little chance that the bodies will be found this season, as the schooner undoubtedly capsized in mid lake. The wife of the late Capt. Brokenshire states that there were five persons on the OCEAN WAVE, her husband Capt. Brokenshire, William Martin, Port Hope; Mr. Smith, Port Hope; Wells, Belleville, and an unknown man. Capt. Brokenshire’s son was not on the vessel as reported. Mrs. Brokenshire has four children at home, the oldest of whom is twelve and the youngest four years of age.
