Full Text

The Schooner MINNEHAHA, of Cheboygan. H.F. Todd, fell a victim to Mondays nights storm, going ashore in the bay at Northport. Captain Todd has returned home. He says they were just going to cast anchor when she struck. The night was very dark, and he had no idea she was so near shore until it was too late to save her. She did not go to pieces, but as it would have cost more than she was worth to get her off and repair her, she was stripped and abandoned. - Chicago Report.
