Full Text

The Scow COMET, lumber laden, was run into and damaged, on Saturday morning about 6 o'clock, by a vessel beating down the Detroit River, carrying away her jibboom and portions of her head gear.

NOTE:-- The type used on the above vessel's name is poor and hard to read, but appears (to me) more probably the Scow (Cornet) and the casualty is also entered under the name of CORNET.
