Full Text

The schr. MARY BOOTH, in attempting to enter the harbor during the prevalence of the heavy northeast gale yesterday morning, was driven on the bar, just north of the wreck of the NONTICELLO. She is freighted with lumber, and it is though that she can be got off without trouble as soon as the seas subside.
Shortly after she went on the bar the Captain and crew came ashore in the small boat. - Chicago Tribune
