A Terrible Situation

Detroit, Nov. 1st - The steamer Depere yesterday morning encountered a four-masted barge, the J.H. Rutter, of Ludington, waterlogged. She succeeded in getting within a mile of Ludington harbour, when she was obliged to leave her. During the night she sank in twenty-five feet of water, near the Ludington pier. The captain, crew, and some seventy men that went to the vessel last night to help to trim her are in the rigging. The sea is running very high. The life-saving station are doing all they can to rescue the men. It was reported this morning that the vessel was breaking up.

p.3 Aground - The propeller Milwaukee, in endeavouring to pass between the wharf and the Shoal Tower, ran aground on the shoal a little below the tower. She was on quite hard. The Lady Franklin went to her assistance but was unable to pull her off. Another tug was procured, and she was got off without damage.
