Full Text

FOREST QUEEN Propeller, beached near Huron, cargo pork and flour, got up and repaired. Property loss $13,000
      Buffalo Express
      Jan. 2, 1854 (casualty list)

      . . . . .

      The FOREST QUEEN, now ashore near Huron, is represented as being in a bad
fix. The rocks have pounded her bottom, and render any hopes of lifting her off
by pumping impossible. She will have to be hauled off and brought into port for
repairs, ere she will be fitted again for service.

      April 26, 1852 3-1
