A MIXED AFFAIR.
THE DISASTER TO THE MARY BRISKIE.
The master of the schooner FLYING MIST, according to the Milwaukee Dispatches, insists that the schooner MARY COLLINS is not ashore ar Bark Riverl that the vessel there is the C.G. MIXER. He is all wrong. The MIXER is not in trouble at all. It is the FLYING MIST man that is the mixer. In saying the the MARY COLLINS was ashore ar Bark River the Inter Ocean was wrong, too, however, It is the MARY BRISKIE that is stranded. But the MARY BRISKIE was the MARY COLLINS until a short time ago, when her name was changed. That the BRISKIE is ashore there is not the least doubt, the intelligence coming here to Mr. Briskie, the present owner, in a dispatch from the master.
The steambarge EMMA E. THOMPSON, with steam pumps, etc., which left here to go to the MARY L. HIGGIE and the BRISKIE was in Milwaukee Sunday night for shelter and probably proceeded yesterday.

NOTE:--- I could find no evidence to support the MARY COLLINS changing names, in fact the MARY COLLINS is still listed in the 1884 Merchant Vessel List ?
