p.3 Marine Notes

Montreal Transportation Co. - Arrived - schooners W.B. Phelps, Chicago, 18,698 bushels corn; A.L. Andrews, Chicago, 19,019 bushels corn; Hypograph (sic), Chicago, 18,175 bushels corn.

Effects Of The Gale - On Saturday night about eight o'clock, during the furious gale which prevailed, some damage occurred at Holcomb & Stewart's wharf. The schooner Dan Lyons, laden with barley, broke from her moorings and ran into the schooner Wayne, which was lying off the shipyard, carrying away her jibboom close to the cap. There were several other little breakages. On Sunday morning another squall came up, which had the effect of making several schooners drag their anchors. The Sam Cook drifted from the head to the foot of Garden Island. The Sir C.T. Van Straubenzie, Groton, and Northman, lying off the foot of Garden Island, ran down about a mile; and a small schooner, name unknown, had her deck load of lumber blown off. The schooner Hypogriff (sic) ran on the Shoal Tower, but was got off without much damage, and the Charlotte Rabb had a narrow escape from the same fate. The tug Lady Franklin rendered effective assistance to the runaway vessels.
