      Jan. 22, 1862 Casualty List, 1861

NOTE :- the U. S. Coast Pilot places Peach Island within the Detroit River, almost in Lake St. Clair.

      . . . . .

      We learn that the schooner MIDNIGHT, bound up is aground on Peach Island, Lake St. Clair, and this morning report say she was pounding badly, and in a somewhat perilous situation. A tug has gone to her relief with the view of lighting her when she will probably be got off without sustaining serious damage.-----Detroit Tribune

The Detroit Free Press says the schooner MIDNIGHT which was ashore on Peach Island, has been pumped out and towed into port.
