Description
Full Text

The protracted rain storm of last week was attended by a heavy gale on the lake. The wind blew directly from the East, and we learn that the "old salts" who were caught towards the head of the lake, pronounce it the worst they have ever encountered in these waters. The schr. KEWANEE in attempting to make the port of Huron was driven ashore and one of the crew drowned. The vessel is seriously injured.
