LIVE YANKEE Schooner, cargo wheat, when going into Milwaukee in a gale, struck the North Pier and carried away bowsprit and etc.

      . . . . .

The schooner LIVE YANKEE also arrived at that port, but when entering the harbor
she broached to and ran afoul of the pier, carrying away bowsprit, head gear, cut-water,
plank-shear, and several stanchions, causing her to leak badly. The probabilities are
that her cargo of wheat will be damaged. The vessel will have to be unloaded, and it will
cost $500 to repair her. ---- Chicago Times
