The schr. Homer lately sunk near Midland, wet 7,243 bushels of her 10,000 bushel cargo of corn. She was not much injured.

A DREDGE GOES DOWN

THE MUNSON SINKS IN ONE HUNDRED FEET OFF LEMOINES POINT.

Yesterday morning the dredge Munson of Belleville, which spent some days dredging for the launching of the barge Minnedosa, left for the bay city in tow of two small tugs. She had been leaking before leaving but it was thought that it would not amount to much. When opposite Lemoine's Point and when the crew least expected it, she sank to the bottom, in about 100' of water. The tow lines were cut in order to save the tugs. The dredge went down beam ends first. The cook, in the kitchen at the time making preparations of dinner, was told to come up but before he had time to run to the stairway the vessel was under water. The fellow went down but soon came up and was rescued by the crew in an exhausted state. He stated afterwards that the suction from the dredge going down kept him from coming to the surface. He had to wait until she reached the bottom. A lot of timber on her deck came up after she sank.
