Bark NEWS BOY, collided with the Schooner WHITE CLOUD.
      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 her topsail and foreyard while off Point Betsey, 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.
