Description
Full Text

The brig CANOPUS, Capt. Hall, and the schr. CORINTHIAN, Capt. Comstock, both bound from Marquette to this port and laden with Lake Superior iron ore, struck the bar on the south side of the entrance to our harbor on Tuesday morning (9/20). The brig, it is thought will go to pieces, being now partially under water, but the schooner will probably be got off. Both are owned in Buffalo.
