SAMSON Propeller, wrecked near Buffalo, cargo flour, all damaged. Property loss $10,000.
      Buffalo Morning Express
      Dec. 25, 1852 (casualty list)

      . . . . .

      The prop. SAMSON it is feared will prove a total wreck, and at the last accounts the sea was breaking over her. She is owned by Mr. Sterling of Monroe, Michigan, and was loaded with flour, 800 of which was consigned to E. Weed & Co., and about 400 bbls. to Holley & Johnson, all of which was insured. She was towed into Erie by the stm. MICHIGAN, on Sunday during the gale, and she had then thrown overboard some 500 bbls. flour, and she was
down on her way from Erie, when driven on the beach. - Buffalo Courier

      Another of those persons who make it a business to purchase stolen goods has been arrested for receiving an anchor chain taken from the propeller SAMPSON, which lies wrecked out in the bay. The property is valued at $100, and the accused will probably serve out a term in State Prison therefor.
