Bay City (Steamboat), 23 May 1862

Full Text

The stm. BAY CITY, which was lost below Malden during the storm of Wednesday afternoon, commenced her carreer as a passenger steamer between this city and Cleveland in 1852, and was then called the FOREST CITY, commanded by Capt. H.C. Vorce. In 1854 she was put on the route between this city and Sandusky under the command of Capt. J.M. Lundy, at which time the name of the BAY CITY was adopted. She remained on the latter route until some 2 years since, when, the business of the route not paying the current expenses, she was converted into a tug boat, and has been thus engaged up to the time of her loss. She was owned by Capt. Edwards, and of 479 tons burthen. We were not informed whether she was insured or not. She will doubtless prove a total loss.
