Capt. Graves of the JOHN S. RICHARDS, arrived here with his vessel last sunday, in tow of the ANDY JOHNSON. She had been driven about between here and the Straits for over a week, had lost her foresail and center board, had lain at anchor in the Straits, at Beaver Harbor and at the south of Manitou, had been so loaded with ice that the sea swept her decks, not even her signal haliards could be cleared for hoisting her signal of distress, when the ANDY JOHNSON found her near the Manitou's, unable to get away, and towed her to Escanaba. -- Escanaba Report
