The Gale At Milwaukee - Damage To Propellers, Vessels, Etc. - The gale was
severe all day, yesterday, and the waves in the bay presented a grand sight to
those who chose to face the driving rain to look at them. The wind blew from
the eastward until towards evening, when it veered to the northeast, and came in
with greater violence.
The propeller GLOBE, bound up, with a large cargo of merchandise, in coming
into the harbor in the morning, struck the bar between the piers, and knocked
off a part of her stem, and her rudder post, making a leak through which the
water entered freely. A steam pump was put aboard, and she was raised enough
to be brought inside of the piers, where she lay at night, with eight feet water in
her hold. She had on board about 150 tons merchandise for this port, which the
Clerk says is on deck and uninjured. - Milwaukee Sentinel, 25.
