Schooner EXCHANGE, grounded in the St. Clair River and detained several days
      Marine Disasters of the Western
      Lakes during 1871, Capt. J.W. Hall


      STILL AGROUND. - The schooner EXCHANGE at last accounts was still aground on St. Clair River. She was flying light at the time she grounded, and, as she go well on it will require a powerful effort to float her. The new steamer J.S. FAY has gone to her assistance.

THE SCHOONER EXCHANGE. - The tug ODD FELLOW, which had been engaged in dredging a canal alongside of the above vessel, which is aground in the St. Clair River, arrived here yesterday. We learn that on the outer, or channel side, the bottom, which consistes of tough blue clay, has been dredged to a depth of nine feet. It is now thought that a powerful tug may be able to pull the EXCHANGE afloat. The G.H. PARKER, left last night with a powerful hawser to make the effort. - Detroit Post, 16th.
