      Buffalo Democracy
      Feb. 28, 1855 (casualty list)

      . . . . .

We learn that the propeller FOREST QUEEN, Capt. Napier, which left this port
on Friday night, bound up, endeavored to put into Grand River on Saturday last,
in the gale for shelter. She, however, got into the trough of the sea and was
thrown broadside on to the beach. Her anchors were got out, and she was
subsequently worked off, and into Grand River, but leaking so badly that all her
pumps had to be kept continuallyy working to prevent her sinking. She will have
to return here for repairs.
