      Feb. 28, 1855 (casualty list)

      . . . . .

      The scow CALIFORNIA, loaded by J.L.Woods, with shingles, went ashore last Sunday, about four miles above Lexington, in a gale of wind. She lay off the shore at anchor, and when the gale came on, attempted to ride it out. She lies up on the shore in about five feet water. Should the weather come off warm and calm for a few days, she can be got off without great loss. Damage to vessel and cargo estimated at $1,000. No Insurance. ------- Sanilac Leader
