Barque MARY STOCKTON, cargo wheat, ashore on Fox Island. Property loss$10,728

      . . . . .

      The Chicago Press & Tribune of Thursday says that "The SALVOR came in
yesterday morning with the bark MARY STOCKTON, lately ashore at South Fox
Island. The MARY STOCKTON was loaded with wheat from this port, and went
ashore on the 18th. ult. By getting a sail under her, the pumps were able to clear
her out, and keep her afloat while coming up. Her cargo of course is a total loss,
it being all pumped out with the water. It was insured in the Buffalo Mutual for
$8,500, which we presume, covers the whole loss. The vessel is said to be not
seriously damaged, though to what extent she may be can hardly be told untin in
dry dock. It is thought $3,000 will cover the expense of getting her off and the
necessary repairs. The STOCKTON is owned by A.R. Cobb & Co., Buffalo, and
is 6 years old.
