Chicago Board of Trade (Bark), U4331, collision, 1 Aug 1867

Full Text

The bark BOARD OF TRADE, which passed down a day or two since from Chicago, was somewhat crippled in her head gear. It appears that when not far distant from the Straits of Mackinaw she collided with the schr. HUBBARD, of Chicago, which vessel was upward bound, lumber laden. The latter vessel has since appeared, sustained some serious damages and narrowly escaped sinking before reaching Milwaukee, to which port she was towed by the tug LEVIATHAN. Her damages it is stated will not fall short of $8,000.
