WESTMORELAND Propeller, ashore on Windmill Point, C.W. Lake Erie. Property loss $500
      Buffalo Democracy
      Feb. 28, 1855 (casualty list)

      . . . . .

The propeller WESTMORELAND, bound from Chicago for this port with a cargo of corn, etc., was run on to Windmill Reef, nearly opposite the lighthouse, at an early hour yesterday morning. The second mate was in charge and had instruction to call the captain as soon as they were off Point Abino, but neglected to do so. The tug BARTON, with a lighter, was sent out yesterday morning to her assistance, and another lighter, last evening. She will probably be got off without sustaining any great damage.

THE WESTMORELAND.---This propeller, which went ashore on Windmill Reef, on Friday Morning last, was got off during the evening, and came into port about 10 o'clock at night. She sustained no damage, and immediately discharged her cargo and was at her dock on Saturday morning, taking in her up freight.
