. . . . .
The schr. SON & HEIR, which arrived here yesterday on her way from Chicago
to Toronto, ran aground at Point aux Barques on Thursday night last in a gale.
She was loaded with corn, and by throwing overboard about 2,000 bu. she got off
with the loss of an anchor. In the gale of Monday last, on Lake Michigan, her
main boom was sprung, and on Thursday night her fore stay sail was carried away
which somewhat disabled her, and was the main cause of her getting aground. She
is a new vessel, having only come out last spring, and is not much injured.
