      WRECK OF THE MOUNT VERNON - The Detroit Advertiser says the hull of the exploded propeller MOUNT VERNON lies S. 3/4 W. three-fourths of a mile from the "Dummy," or mainland, Point au Pelee Light, and is marked by a byoy. This we are credibly informed by the man at the wheel of the scow OTTOCA, but all the other men being below, for some reason he did not pay proper heed to it.
