Description
Full Text

Sunday night the wind blew great guns, and the lake at Chicago was visited by a terrific gale. The schooner HIRONDELLE, from Kalamazoo, laden with lumber and shingles, bound for that port, encountered this gale. During the gale the fore-boom and fore-gaff, and the main-boom and main-gaff of the schooner were carried away, her main sail split to ribbons, and 150,000 shingles swept from her deck. She rode out the storm however, and was brought into port by the tug RAMSEY.
