p.2 Loss of the Barque Mojave And All On Board - A rumor announcing the loss of the barque Mojave, with all hands, reached this city yesterday afternoon, and we fear that the facts as they have reached us may prove but too true. The Mojave, when last seen, was in company with the Canadian barque Monarch, on Friday last, in Lake Michigan, about midway between Sheboygan and Point au Sable. Capt. Filan, of the Monarch, states that when he last saw the ill-fated craft she was rolling heavily and making bad weather of it, being less than four miles distant. It is presumed that while endeavoring to wear ship, and getting in the trough of the sea, she swamped and went down, as she disappeared instantaneously, as it were, and was not seen afterward, although she was sighted for from the masthead. The Mojave was a new vessel, having come into commission the present season, and was owned by G.W. Bissell, of this city, where she was built. She was commanded by Capt. D.N. Malott, whose family reside at Gosfield, C.W. [Detroit Free Press, 14th]
