Buffalo Commercial Advertiser
Jan. 22, 1862. Casualty List, 1861
Late on the evening of Friday, while the schooner ALICE GROVER, of Toronto, Capt. D. McLachlan, laden with coal from Erie, Penn. for Messrs. M.J. Borst & Co., was attempting to make the harbour, she ran aground on the bar outside the Queen's wharf.
The waves made a clean breast over the vessel, and the captain and crew deemed it prudent to take to the boats, and we are happy to state that they reached the shore in safety, during a violent snow storm. There is every hope that the vessel and cargo will be saved. The schooner is only partially insured.
