Description
Full Text

The Schooners MARENGO and BLACK HAWK, were laying alongside the pier, the latter heavily loaded with wheat and flour. Anxious to secure a more favorable position, owing to the gale, they left their moorings and started for the head of the harbor. The former succeeded admirably in gaining a berth, but the BLACK HAWK being "head out" had no time to "round to" before she came in contact with a vessel on the east side of the Creek, by which she lost her figure-head and jib-boom. - Buffalo Commercial part.
