TILLINGHAST, T.A. Propeller Tug, lost smokestack by collision at Erie, Pa.
      Marine Disasters on the Western
      Lakes during 1869, Capt. J.W. Hall

      The wrecking tug TILLINGHAST suffered considerable damage from getting on the breakwater while trying to help the BADGER STATE off a shoal in the harbor last Friday. But for the tug GREEN the TILLINGHAST would probably have gone to pieces as the gale was one of the hardest ever known here. The prop. JAY GOULD bound up, arrived at this port last evening. She will await for the storm to abate.
