Brig CLARION, cargo wheat, ashore on Isle Au Galett, Lake Michigan.
      Buffalo Morning Express
      March 11, 1861. (Casualty List, 1860)

      . . . . .

      ON A REEF. - The propeller NIAGARA reports the brig CLARION hard on
Skillagalee Reef with a cargo of grain. The NIAGARA was too deeply loaded to
approach near enough to render any assistance. Captain Lathrop, however, called
at Mackinaw and notified Capt. Hart, of the tug LEVIATHAN, who left immediately
to go to her relief. Should the weather continue favorable it is probable she may be
got off.

      . . . . .

      The propeller CUYAHOGA, which arrived yesterday from Chicago, reports the
Brig CLARION still on Skillagalee, with slim prospects of getting off. There was
no assistance at hand when the CUYAHOGA passed her.

      The propeller MAYFLOWER, which passed down today, reports the brig CLARION
stripped and abandoned, and fast going to pieces. We learn nothing as regards
insurance.
