WHIRLWIND Schooner, lumber, ashore at Racine Property loss $2,000
      Buffalo Morning Express
      Jan. 11, 1856 (Casualty List)

The schooner WHIRLWIND went ashore at Racine on Sunday afternoon. She attempted to make the harbor, but was driven too far to windward, and went against Raymond's pier, whence the waves soon carried her to land. No lives were lost. She had on a cargo of lumber, which together with the vessel, it was supposed would prove a total loss. The latter was fast going to pieces against the pier. The WHIRLWIND is an old vessel. -- Chicago Times, Tuesday.
