In answer to an inquiry regarding the report that the officers of the U.S.S. MICHIGAN had found the wreck of the stm. DEAN RICHMOND, Ensign H.H. Caldwell, navigator of the steamer says. "The report that the DEAN RICHMOND, off Dunkirk is untrue. We found and located a spar which has been reported to be in that vicinity for several years. It is the lower mast of a sailing vessel, projecting 5 ft. above water, and is anchored, evidently by heavy rigging and wreckage. It lies 10 1/3 miles N.5 E. (true) from Dunkirk lighthouse in 81 ft. of water.
