Brig B.A. STANARD, cargo corn, lost foremast in gale on Lake Michigan.
      Buffalo Commercial Advertiser
      January 31, 1857 (1856 casualty list)

      . . . . .

Dismasted. - The Detroit Free Press of Wed., says the bark B.A. STANARD of Cleveland, arrived here yesterday afternoon, bound to Buffalo. On Thursday last, when off the Foxes, Lake Michigan, during a heavy wind and sea, she lost her fore-mast, main-top-mast and flying jib-boom, the former falling on her deck. She rode out the gale, however, and succeeded in reaching Traverse Bay, where the wreck was somewhat cleared up, and she proceeded on her voyage. The brig ECLIPSE towed her over the St. Clair Flats to this port. No person was lost or injured. She is loaded with corn, and, we understand, goes on to Buffalo immediately.
