List of American Vessels, 1847
. . . . .
The following schooners are ashore on the Canada side near Gravelly Bay: INDIANA, loaded with salt, a total wreck; MISSISSIPPI, Capt. Raymond, for Kingston, loaded with flour and pork, a total wreck; OHIO, Capt. Robertson, loading light; M. KINGMAN, high and dry, will probably be got off; and the brig F. MILLS and the schooner E. JENNY, the particulars of whose loss was given Saturday. A little above Point Abino is the FLORIDA, loaded with flour, pork and whiskey for this port.
The H. PIERSON, which came in during the storm on Saturday, was saved with great difficulty. All her sails are gone, together with her companionway and several spars. There is scarcely a vessel in the harbor but what has suffered more or less. -- Buffalo Com. Adv.
