Mazatlan, Nov.15-- The schooner Napoleon, which left this port on September 17, bound for Lapaz, Lower California, has not been heard from and has undoubtedly been lost. Stormy weather prevailed for some time after her departure. Captain Napoleon M. Slavin, her owner, was in charge. She carried a crew of three men. Her cargo consisted of pottery and fifty barrels of tequila.
