PROPELLER EVERGREEN CITY. - This steam barge, it will be remembered, went ashore during a fearful gale late last fall on Long Point, Lake Erie. At the thime of her disaster she was upward bound, freighted with a large quantity of supplies for Loud, Gay & Co., at Au Sable. The captain arrived here on Sunday, and reports the situation of the vessel favorable for getting her afloat, and is in quest of assistance to that end. He further states that all of her supplies, including nearly all of her cabin fit-out, including even the stained glass from her cabin windows, have been stolen. A number of the rascals have been arrested and compelled to disgorge a portion of their booty, while others have escaped across the lines.

Loud, Gay & Co. owned the boat as well as huge tracts of timberland around Oscoda, Michigan. Their primary business was lumbering. EVERGREEN CITY (624 gt., US#7240) may have been recovered in 1873, but if so she did not last long afterwards.
