      Remarkable Record of the HATTIE ESTELLE.
The schooner HATTIE ESTELLE, Which was wrecked with the loss of three lives at Manistee, Mich., Tuesday night, has a remarkable record. The vessel was built in 1873 by Capt. J. L. Higgie, who gave her the name of MARY L. HIGGIE, after his little daughter. Shortly after she was in commission she took a load of deals from Green Bay to England, returning with a cargo of coal for Quebec. After discharging her cargo she left Quebec for Cape Town, Africa, with a load of deals. Leaving there she went to Natal during the African war, and brought back to Capt. Town a boat load of prisoners. She then went to Natal and brought a cargo of wool to Quebec. Her next trip was to Toulon, France, and Cadiz, Spain. At the latter port she took on a cargo of salt and brought it to Chicago, which was sold for $11:50 a ton Capt. Hatch, now master of the McDougall whaleback boat, which is making a cruise in the Pacific Ocean, commanded her, and he never had an accident of any kind. Capt. Higgie sold her to Capt. Estelle three years ago for $8,000. The captain renaming her after his wife, Hattie Estelle. -- Cleveland Leader.
