Casualty List for 1866---Buffalo
Commercial Advertiser, Feb. 26, 1867
VESSEL ASHORE.---Yesterday morning, at about 1 o'clock, the schooner LOOKOUT, Capt. Graves, went ashore a short distance below Bar Point, Lake Erie, caused, it is believed, by some derangement of her compasses. She took her departure from Sandusky on Wednesday for Saginaw, calling at Kelly's Island for a load of stone, from which point she pursued the course usually taken by vessels for the Detroit river, a N.W. by W direction. The night was somewhat misty, and land was not discovered until too late to avoid going ashore. The severe weather of yesterday has doubtless went hard with her. --- Detroit Post, 23rd.

Schooner LOOKOUT All Right.--- The Schooner LOOKOUT, which was reported ashore at Bar Point, we are pleased to learn, has been got off by the tug T.F.PARK, and is apparently unharmed. The heavy S.W. gale on Saturday disturbed the waters considerably where she lay, but owing to her strong build, she sustained no injury whatever. Detroit Post, 24th.
