Full Text

PACIFIC Propeller, aground at the St. Clair Flats; lightered off.
      Marine Disasters on the Western
      Lakes during 1869, Capt. J.W. Hall


DISASTERS - The seamer CORTLANDT is reported ashore at Lakeport. The schooner A. BRONSON is ashore 10 miles below Sheboygan light. The propeller PACIFIC is hard aground on St. Louis flats, below the Dummy. The propeller AVON has disappeared entirely. During the gale Thursday night (11/4) several vessels parted their fastenings, among which were the tugs ECLIPSE and PARKER and the brig SUNBURN. The schooner DACOTAH, which arrived up yesterday, lost both anchors. Although no information has yet been received, we fear that the gale will be attended by a large loss among the vessels, and may unfortunately cost the lives of many seamen.
