Full Text

The propeller LEHIGH arrived here June 7th. with the crew of the schooner L.VAN VALKENBERG, which was sunk by the LEHIGH on Thunder Bay during a heavy fog. The VAN VALKENBERG was bound up with a full cargo of coal. She was running with a free sheet; wind south and heavy. She sunk in a very short time after the crew had got into the yawl boat, who were afterwards picked up by the LEHIGH. The cook of the schooner received a slight scalp wound. He was the only person injured. The VAN VALKENBERG was owned by Thomas Hood of Chicago, and was not insured as is known here. The LEHIGH is not damaged to any extent.
