Foundering of the Varuna

Lake City, Fla., Nov. 3 -- The steam-ship Varuna, Capt. Joseph Spencer, which sailed from New-York, Oct. 15, for Galveston, Texas, foundered during the night of Oct. 20 off Jupiter Inlet, Fla. All on board except the second mate and four men were lost. The Varuna belonged to Messrs. C.H. Mallory & Co's. line; was a first-class wooden propeller, only one year old, and 670 tons burden. Her cargo consisted chiefly of dry goods. Thirty-six cabin passengers were on board the Varuna, nearly all of whom were from Texas. The New York Times, November 4, 1870
