Description
Full Text

The Chicago Press & Tribune of Thursday says that " The SALVOR came in yesterday morning with the bark MARY STOCKTON, lately ashore at South Fox Island. The MARY STOCKTON was loaded with wheat for this port, and went ashore on the 18th ult. By getting a sail under her, the pumps were able to clear her out, and keep her afloat while coming up. Her cargo of course is a total loss, it being all pumped out with the water. It was insured in the Buffalo Mutual for $8,500, which will we presume, cover the whole loss. The vessel is said to be not seriously damaged, though to what extent she may be can hardly be told until in dry dock. It is thought $3,000 will cover the expense of getting her off and the necessary repairs. The STOCKTON is owned by A.R. Cobb & Co., of Buffalo, and is 6 years old."
