"Loss of the Schooner Chenago"

The schooner Chenago, which has been engaged part of the time in the iron ore trade between Lake Superior and this port this season , ran on a reef near Wood Island, Lake Superior, on Saturday night last. Her crew, consisting of the captain, a mate, three sailors and a woman cook, at first supposed to be lost, were found a day or two afterwards in the cabin of the vessel and rescued. They had managed to keep the stove above water, and with the aid of a fire, to preserve life.
