MAYFLOWER Propeller, collided with Schooner ARCTURUS, in entering St. Clair River. Property loss $300
      Buffalo Democracy
      Feb. 28, 1855 (casualty list)
     
      . . . . .

      We learn by telegraph from Detroit, that the propeller MAYFLOWER, from Mackinaw to Detroit, encountered a heavy gale on Sunday last. Some wheat in her hold shifted, so as to throw the vessel on her beam ends. In order to right her, two hundred bbls. flour and three hundred bbls. of pork and beef were thrown overboard. Subsequently, while going into St. Clair River, a schooner ran into her, tearing away one of her arches, and demolishing several state rooms.
