On the evening of the 10th inst., the schooner Bridget, with a full cargo and fifteen persons, including passengers, on board, anchored near the mouth of the St. Joseph river, and sent a part of her cargo on shore; during the night the wind commenced blowing a heavy gale which drifted her several miles down the river, where she sunk, and not a soul on board was spared to "tell the tale of wo." [sic] She was an utter loss.
On the same evening the Utica, with a cargo of 200 barrels of salt and other goods, was wrecked at Michigan City. Cargo lost - crew saved.
The Swan, with freight for St. Joseph, foundered at New Buffalo. Vessel, cargo, crew, and passengers (if there were any) lost.
The schooner Llewellyn drifted ashore at the mouth of the St. Joseph, about 3 o'clock on Wednesday morning, where she now lays very much injured - crew saved.
The masts of another vessel was discovered off St. Joseph, supposed to be the Chance - she had sunk, the top of her masts only being out of water. Vessel and cargo entirely lost - crew and what passengers there might have been on board were also undoubtedly lost, as there is no intelligence of them.
The Lodi, bound for St. Joseph, arrived at Grand River with the loss of her deck loading.
All these losses, together with several others which have occurred during the past summer, might have been prevented had there suitable harbors constructed at the several ports on the Lake.
