The lumber wreck reported by the downward bound vessels as being at the upper end of the lake, is doubtless that of the barge CLIFTON, which went to pieces off Pt. au Pelee. The Cleveland Herald gives the following particulars of her loss: "On Saturday the barge CLIFTON, lumber laden for this port, in tow of the stm. HENRY HOWARD, went to pieces between Pt. Pelee and this port. The crew were saved by the HOWARD and brought to this port. The CLIFTON was formerly a steamer and plied on the rivers and upper lakes.

NOTE:- The barge CLIFTON, owned by Cambell, and an ex steamer, was obviously recovered from the above accident. her remains lie in Clifton Bay, near Bone Island, Georgian Bay.
