Feb. 28, 1855 (casualty list)
. . . . .
The schooner REPUBLIC, from Milwaukee to this port with a cargo of grain, ran on
to a rock near the Clay Banks, some fifteen miles this side of Detroit River, in the
severe snow storm. Capt. Cross informs us that after he got his vessel off, he found
she was leaking badly, and he had to keep three pumps going without cessation,
until he arrived in port on Monday evening. The cargo was discharge during the
night, and in the morning she was found to have three feet water in her hold. She was
taken into dry dock last evening for repairs. Her cargo was not damaged.
