Agnes (Schooner), aground, 1 Nov 1869


Description
Full Text

On Thursday night a gale set in which was unequalled in violence by anything which has visited the lake region during the season of navigation since the storm of October 21, 1868. There is reason to fear that it must have proved terribly disastrous to vessels on the lake. We give in the local columns the particulars of the wreck of the bark PLYMOUTH off our harbor. We learn by a private dispatches that the schr. AGNES is ashore and a total loss at Port Maitland. An unknown vessel is reported ashore a short distance below Windmill Pt. Several vessels which left port on Thursday afternoon bound up, were driven back with more or less severe damage to their rigging and canvass. The schr. OLIVER CULVER lost her jibs; the B.F. WADE came in with her sails badly split; the scow LOTTIE lost her jibboom, flying jib and yawl. The brigs N.M. STANDART and WILLIAM SCOTT were brought in uninjured, but with great difficulty. The schr. WILLIAMS which lay up at Black Rock harbor was lifted by the heavy sea on the sea wall.
