Description
Full Text

The government schr. BELLE STEPHENS, which got ashore some days since, freighted with cordwood, on Skillagalee, is reported a total loss. Heavy weather intervened while the wreckers were engaged in trying to effect her release, which floated her off the reef, hence on the beach not far distant, where she became broken up. She was built at St. Joseph on Lake Michigan, in 1861, and was consequently 12 years old. She was 115 tons burden, and has been for several years in the United States service.
