Full Text

The stm. ILLINOIS reports the schr. ETHAN ALLEN ashore at Copper Harbor, lake Superior, but it was probable she would be got off without much damage. A tug has been dispatched to Mackinac for a steam pump, and meantime the vessel was scuttled to prevent her pounding on the bottom.

The prop. NORTHERN LIGHT, from Lake Superior, reports that the schr. ETHAN ALLEN has been raised by the steam tug sent to her assistance from Mackinac and taken to Copper Harbor. She was badly injured, and it was only with difficulty that she was kept afloat. The schr. CORRESPONDENT had taken off her cargo and was to bring it to Marquette.
