Full Text

The schooner SEAMAN, of Algonac, Mich., lumber laden, while trying to make Erie at an early hour Monday morning, was caught in the heavy Southwest blow and driven hard upon the east end of Presque Isle beach. The crew were taken off by life-saving men. The revenue cutter PERRY went to her assistance in the afternoon, but owing to the high seas which were running, she was of little use Most of the SEAMAN's deck load was washed overboard.
