We return our thanks to Mr. R.G. Winslow, of the BUNKER HILL, for the following memoranda: Sailed from Chicago April 19 - left in port Schr. MERRICK which had lost both top masts off Point au Sable in a squall... the schooner REINDEER had been ashore near Milwaukee, was got off by Capt. Nickerson, agent Buffalo Mutual Ins. Co. and towed into Milwaukee with loss of ruder and part of keel...

      The schr. REINDEER of Buffalo, Capt. Flood, ran ashore on the evening of the 16th, about 6 miles north of this town; and to save the vessel, the cargo of lumber was thrown overboard. The dense thick fog which covered the lake at the time, led to the disaster. She is now off, and in port, slightly damaged. - Milwaukee Sentinel.
