Full Text

Chicago.---Schooner FLYING CLOUD is in trouble. She left Chicago last week, bound for Goderich with a cargo of corn. Captain Scott says he encountered heavy weather on Lake Huron and was driven sixty miles out of his course. The vessel lost nearly all of her canvas and had her centerboard broken. She made Point Edward and is leaking badly. H.J. Coon & Co., owner of the cargo, telegraphed permission to discharge the cargo at Port Huron.
