Description
Full Text

The scow SWIFT got herself in rather an awkward dilemma yesterday by drifting athwart the bows of the schr. NICARAGUA which lay at anchor in the stream. Being loaded with oak lumber, and a strong current setting down upon her, she remained in this awkward fix until the stmr. CLARA came to her relief, which brought her out, minus her main mast. The captain of the SWIFT contemplates changing her name to some other more appropriate.
