Andrew Stevens (Bark), aground, 23 Nov 1867
- Full Text
VESSEL ASHORE. - The bark ANDREW STEVENS, which sailed from here a few days
since for Georgian Bay, on her arrival at or near her destination ran upon one of those dangerous reefs, so numerous in that locality, and will fare hard ere she gets afloat, if not totally wrecked. She is a vessel 12 years old, 417 ton burthen, built at Hamilton, and was owned at that port until quite recently.
Being so far advanced in years, it is barely possible that she will ever reach port again.
The tug B.B. JONES has gone to her relief with a steam pump.

. . . . .
The old bark ANDREW STEVENS has in all probability become a total wreck, and is hardly worth going after, except for anchors and chains and other fit-out. Two attempts have been made by tugs with steam pumps from this port to reach the locality where it is stated she was lost, but in each instance the turbulent state of the weather forced them to return, and subsequently to abandon the project.

NOTE:- The STEVENS was got off. (see underwriters registers for 1871, 1873
