Schooner SEBASTOPOL, cargo coal, ashore near New Buffalo, Lake Michigan.
      Buffalo Commercial Advertiser
      January 31, 1857 (1856 casualty list)

      . . . . .

      The schooner SEBASTOPOL, ashore ten miles to the northward of St. Joseph,
and the schooner recently from New York, now ashore seven miles from the same
port, were visited by Capt. Warren with the steam tug SALVOR. He says the
SEBASTOPOL has two feet of water on her decks and can't be got off, having been
abandoned. She had a cargo of 400 tons of coal for Chicago. The New York vessel
is not much injured, but will probably have to lay there all winter. She had a cargo of
machinery, goods, &c., for a gentleman of South Haven, by whom she had been
chartered for two years at $7,000 per annum. - Chicago Tribune, 3.

      . . . . .

      The Chicago Press, of the 9th, says the brig TREAT has been got off the
beach at Milwaukee, and taken inside. She was not materially injured. The
LANSING, the SEBASTOPOL, and the vessel from New York, ashore on the
east side of the lake have all been abandoned.
