Erie (Schooner), aground, 13 Sep 1851

Full Text

ERIE Schooner, formerly the U. S. Revenue Cutter, in attempting to make our Harbor, last night at about 9 o'clock, missed the entrance and struck on the South Harbor pier, and went ashore between Dulton & Raymond's and the Harbor pier, where she now lies full of water. She will probably prove a total loss. The crew were taken off by some sailors, who dragged a yawl about 20 rods, and launched it and took them off, while the sea was making a complete breach over the vessel. She was loaded with grindstones. They will probably save her spars, sails and rigging. - Racine Sept. 14
