Description
Full Text

The stone barge COL. COOK, now plying on the river, is a vessel with a history. She was a handsome schooner in her day, and 30 odd years up, she collided with the LADY ELGIN, which sank in 15 [?] feet of water, causing the loss of 600 lives, the worse disaster which ever happened on the lakes.
