Allies (Bark), storm damage, 1 Jul 1859

Full Text

A dispatch was received in the city yesterday from Capt. Farwell, of the bark ALLIES, stating that his vessel was struck by a severe thunder storm when 60 miles below Quebec, all her sails were carried away, and she was completely dismasted. She was towed back to Quebec, where she lies for further orders. The captain states that it will cost $750 to set her right again so that she can proceed on her voyage. The ALLIES was loaded at New Baltimore, in this state, with 110,000 ft. of oak plank and 40,000 staves. She is sent out by T.N. Wilson of that place.
