Marine News

The steamer Louisiana, which went ashore at Port Burwell, will prove a total wreck. Her cargo, engine, and furniture will be saved.

Steamer Reindeer - Capt. Davison, Marine Inspector, has sent assistance by propeller Mears to Point Sauble, to the sufferers who were saved from the ill-fated vessel, to bring them to this port, and also to inter the bodies of the drowned, when picked up, and to take care of any property that may be saved from the wreck. [Chicago Tribune]

Disaster - Captain Drowned - On Tuesday, the schooner J.S. Newhouse, of Chicago, Capt. Spence, on her downward passage, was overtaken by the late terrible gale when off Presque Isle. Her fore boom was snapped, her jib carried away, and her mainsail split. But the worst remains to be told. A heavy sea swept over her deck, washing overboard Capt. Spence and three of the crew. Capt. S. was drowned; the other three were brought back by the returning wave and managed to get safely on board. Capt. Spence leaves a wife and four children in Cleveland. The Newhouse reached this port last night. [Detroit Tribune 26th Oct.]

Collision - We learn that the schooner Crenola, bound for Buffalo with a full cargo of wheat from Chicago, collided with a white brig, the name of which is unknown, off Presque Isle, on Friday night. She was towed into Presque Isle by the propeller Acme, and is said to be leaking, but of this we are not certain. The Rescue has gone to her assistance. [ib.]
