WATERLOGGED AND DECKLOAD GONE. - 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.
