Full Text

The schr. HOPE, Capt. Miller, cleared from this port at 2:00 P.M., Sunday, for Kenosha, with a cargo of coal, and was out in the great storm of Sunday night. She has not been heard from since, although dilligent inquiries have been made at all points along the west shore above Milwaukee, and is given up a lost with all on board. The HOPE hailed from Kenosha, and was owned by C.L. El and Capt. C. Miller, the commander. Her crew consisted of 4 men, besides the captain, all residents of Kenosha. The coal was owned by Messrs. Durant, Van Ansdale & Co., of Kenosha, and insured for $500. We do not learn that there was any insurance on the vessel. - Milwaukee Sentinel, 28th
