The following brief report appeared in the Nautical Magazine for Oct 1834 : ARIEL, packet brig, thirty-four persons on board, left Falmouth on the 10th of Nov. 1828, for Halifax; was seen standing direct for Sable Island in December, by a trading schooner of Halifax, which had tacked in 10 fathoms water. Mr. Dulen, the master of the said schooner, endeavoured to warn her off, without success, and she is supposed to have run on shore within two hours after.
