Bark B.A. STANARD, lost foreyard, split topsail etc., off Point Betsy, Lake Michigan.
      Buffalo Commercial Advertiser
      January 26, 1863 (Casualty List, 1862)

      . . . . .

      A GALE. - There was quite a severe blow on the lake Thursday and Friday night and
some disasters, though, so far as we have heard, not of a serious nature. The barks
B.S. STANNARD and NEWSBOY, bound hence for Buffalo and loaded with wheat, put
back to port Saturday, both in a somewhat disabled condition. The STANNARD lost
topsail and foreyard while off Port Betsy, and the NEWSBOY had a collision with an
unknown vessel which carried away her jibboom and cut-water and badly damaged her
stern. A portion, at least, of the cargo of the latter will have to be taken out before she
can be repaired. - Milwaukee Sentinel.
