. . . . .
The schr. TEELEGRAPH, Capt. Richard Hayes, owned by Ferry & Son, of this
place, was capsized on Friday morning last. A severe squall from the southwest
struck her when about 40 miles from Chicago, and her sails being all set she was
struck aback and went immediately over. The crew all succeeded in clearing
themselves from the wreck, although the captain and cook, who were asleep in the
cabin, had a very narrow escape. They were picked up by the schooner GEM, and
arrived at Chicago safely. The tug McQUEEN, with the schr. MAGIC in tow,
immediately went in search of the vessel, and by Sunday forenoon had her safely
in port. - Grand Haven News, 31st.
