      January 26, 1863 (Casualty List, 1862)

      . . . . .

      The bark WAVERLY arrived here yesterday disabled by damages received near the Flats while in tow of a tug in company with other vessels, caused by the leading vessel grounding, the other colliding in consequence. The whole tow, consisting of four vessels, were more or less damaged, the bark so much so as to cause her to leak. She has arrived here for repairs. - Detroit Free Press.

      THOROUGHLY REPAIRED. - The Detroit Free Press, of Thursday, says the bark WAVERLY, which sustained serious damages by collision in the River St. Clair some time since, and arriving here for repairs, has completed the same and took her departure for Buffalo yesterday with her cargo of grain. She has had a substantial overhauling and rebuild throughout, and is now, doubtless in better condition than before the accident.
