Full Text

DAMAGED.-The schooner L.B. SHEPHARD passed down yesterday, having encountered the recent blow on Lake Huron, during which she lost her small boat, foretopmast, jib-boom, and most of her bulwarks. In consequence of her leaking badly, the captain entered a protest on his cargo at this port. The captain of the SHEPHARD reports having seen the schooner W. B. OGDEN at Tawas Bay with her foresail gone and otherwise disabled.
