ASHORE. - The Chicago Democratic Press says the schooner ROCKY MOUNTAIN of Cleveland, Capt. O. Stentam, lost her rudder off the mouth of the Kalamazoo River, on Wednesday last in a blow, and went ashore near the mouth of that river. The captain and crew had hard work to run her ashore, as she was half full of water when she struck.
She was "flying light," and was insured for $2,000. A protest has been entered for the recovery of the insurance money.
