p.2 The captain of the bark Robert Gaskin writes to her owner, Captain Gaskin, from Milwaukie on Monday, that he had a hard time of it on the upward trip, experiencing a series of gales of wind and fog. On Monday evening a squall suddenly struck the vessel with everything set, and split in ribbons the topgallant sail and the flying jib, and brought down the topsail yard. The ship was struck down on her beamends with 3 or 4 streaks of her deck under water, and although everything was let go, owing to the position of the ship, fully half an hour elapsed before she was righted and got before the wind. She finally reached Milwaukie in her damaged state.

p.3 Imports - 29,30; Exports - 29.
