A. E. Hart (Schooner), U384, aground, 9 Sep 1859
- Full Text
The schooner. A.E. HART laden with 20,800 bu. corn from Chicago, arrived here last Sunday. On her passage down she ran on to the rocks off the Clay Banks, at the head of Lake Erie, and remained on several hours. The propeller PLYMOUTH attempted to pull her off without success. After all other efforts failed to get her off, Capt. Pratt jettisoned a portion of her cargo, and, by keeping a press of sail on her, forced her off at last. She is now here in drydock, caulking. Her bottom is not much damaged. The government should put a good large sized buoy on this rock, and on the East Sister Shoal. As this is the great thoroughfare of vessels, they are more needed then at any other point upon the lakes. - - Buff. Ex., 7th.
