Colonel Benton (Schooner), aground, 11 Nov 1835
- Full Text
THE GALE - On visiting the harbor, yesterday, the ravages of the storm, though more destructive than ever before known in this place, was less than we had anticipated. The greatest amount of damage seemed to be around and near the foot of Main Street. The Creek was completely filled with lumber, collected by the current, and forming a solid bridge over the Creek, above the principle body of shipping.
The schooner TECUMSEH lay aground at the head of the pier, and the COLONEL
BENTON, one of the finest vessels on the lake, ran ashore several miles above, with the loss of her deck load.
Several steamboats lay high and dry, and one sloop, with all her sails up, lays in Ohio Street, in from Mr. Rathbun's large storehouse.
