Schooner KINGFISHER, ashore at the Clay Banks; got off.
      Marine Disasters on the Western
      Lakes during 1871, Capt. J.W. Hall

      . . . . .

SCHOONER KINGFISHER ASHORE. - The schooner KINGFISHER, from Cleveland, while going up the passage Wednesday night, went ashore at the Clay Banks and is hard on. The weather Thursday was of such a character as to make her situation extremely perilious, yet, being a comparatively new vessel and of staunch build she may probably
survive the storm and be got off as soon as the weather subsides. Her captain has gone to Detroit in quest of assistance to get her off.

      SCHOONER KINGFISHER OFF. - This vessel, which got ashore a day or two since at the Clay Banks, was pulled off on Saturday by the tug CHAMPION. She went into Clark's dry dock, Detroit, for repairs.
