"SHIPWRECK AT GREEN BAY - During the Southeast gale on the 14th, the small schooner Art Palace, commanded by "Commodore Peg-Leg," and used as a floating bagnio (brothel), anchored off Cedar River, in Green Bay, but dragged until she struck upon the rock-strewn shore, when she filled with water. The craft will probably prove a total loss. The captain and crew of the vessel, the latter consisting of half a dozen model artistes, succeeded in reaching the shore, and were at last accounts, leading a gipsy life in the woods at Cedar River. - (Milwaukee Sentinel)
