THE KYLE SPANGLER SUNK - The Detroit Tribune of Thursday says: The vessel
sunk in Lake Huron by collision with the RACINE, proves to be the schooner KYLE
SPANGLER, the captain of which arrived today in the GRANITE STATE. She was
struck between the cathead and nighthead, and went down in about ten minutes.
She was bound from Chicago for Buffalo with 15,000 bushels corn. She was worth
$10,000, and was owned, we believe, by parties in New York city.
