Brig OCEAN, ashore near Point Peninsula.
      Buffalo Commercial Advertiser
      January 26, 1863 (Casualty List 1862)

      . . . . .

      THE STORM OF SUNDAY NIGHT. - By the steamer PIERREPONT from Cape
Vincent we learn yesterday that the brigantine OCEAN lies at anchor off Fox Island,
rudderless, and it was feared she would go ashore. The scow BAY QUEEN, laden
with barlet for Oswego, when off that port was struck by the gale, and lost mainsail,
foresail and forestaysail, and ran down to near Cape Vincent. The PIERREPONT
went out on Tuesday evening to the relief of both of these vessels, but the wind being
squally, it was thought prudent to return without accomplishing her errand. - Kingston
News.
