      Marine Disasters of the Western
      Lakes during 1871, Capt. J.W. Hall.

      . . . . .

      WATERLOGGED AND DECKLEAD LOST. - The lumber barge FORRESTER,
which is the hull of the old steamer FORRESTER, which ran for years between
Detroit and Point au Barques, arrived here yesterday in a water-logged condition.
During the storm of Tuesday, and when off Rondeau, the sea made a breach over her,
carrying away about 100,000 feet of the deck load, and filling the hold with water. She
was towed into this port by the propeller GROH.
