About 4 o'clock a.m. of the 19th the schooner BUCKINGHAM loaded with iron, sprung a leak about 15 miles above Harrisville, and being run towards shore sunk in three fathoms of water. The steamer SANDUSKY rescued the crew of the vessel who had taken to the yawl boat. It is thought that the vessel can be saved.

      Alpena. - The steam wrecking barge MONITOR is now here and still in command of Capt. Gill Traverse. Her operations thus far this season cover the following wrecks: Schooner EMPIRE STATE, sunk in October or November of last year, from which 400 tons of iron ore were obtained; a schooner, name unknown, lying inside of Middle Island, and which has been there many years, 80 tons; schooner NESHOTO, sunk in 1872, from which 120 tons of ore were saved, and in which much more remain; schooner WAVERTREE, on which the MONITOR is at work now, and which so far, has yielded 250 tons of ore. After all is taken from her the MONITOR will go to the wreck of the old schooner BUCKINGHAM, sunk about one mile below Black River Island, on Black River Reef. But very little remains to mark the resting place of any of the above named vessels, excepting the last two. (part)
