Marine Disasters on the Western
Lakes during 1871, Capt. J.W. Hall
. . . . .
A DOUBLE MISFORTUNE. - The schooner CORTLANDT, downward bound with a cargo of lumber, on entering the Detroit River on Tuesday, grounded on the head of Belle Isle, from which she was released by the tug URANIA. Almost immediately after leaving the Island she collided with the propeller J.L. HURD, damaging herself to such an extent that she was necessarily at once taken to dry dock. Her jibboom and bowsprit were carried away, besides her bows injured, causing a bad leak. The COURTLANDT was taken to Campbell, Owen & Co.'s dry dock, and will doubtless have to be relieved of a portion of her cargo before she can be repaired. - Detroit Post.
