THE BARK CREAM CITY. - The steam bark Cream City, now due on her third trip from Milwaukee, will, it is stated, on her return to that port, be relieved of her steam propelling power, which is to be taken out of her, and in the future she is to rely solely on the use of her sails. Her machinery has from the first proved more of a detriment than a benefit to her, moving her along at the rate of only 4 1/2 miles per hour in the smoothest of weather.

Item Type:
The CREAM CITY went ashore in the great gale of Nov 22, 1869 near Detour, Michigan, in northern Lake Huron and was stranded. Despite determined efforts to extricate her, the big vessel resisted all attempts and was abandoned to break up December 8.
