Hurricane (Schooner), 1854

Full Text

Schooner HURRICANE. oF 331 tons gross. Built Buffalo, N.Y., 1854 by G. W. Weeks. -- Foundered Lake Michigan, 1860, with the loss of 9 lives.
      Herman Runge Notes

The propeller NILE, Capt. Rounds, arrived from Chicago last night with 25,000 bu oats for P.S. Marsh, and a large quantity of other freight. Capt. Rounds reports large fleets in Detroit and St. Clair rivers, bound up. He also saw two schooners ashore at Long Point. They prove to be the E.M. LYON and the HURRICANE, and were beached last Tuesday. The latter is a new vessel , owned by Watson A. Fox, and was on her first round from Chicago, bound down. She had on a full cargo of provisions. A tug and schooner went up last night to light her, and she will, no doubt, be got off without material damage.
