Wrecks and Heavy Losses.
Another boat, the steamer PASSAIC, has been added to the list of Lake Erie losses for the present season. She stranded off Dunkirk and is a total wreck. The Passaic was owned by Capt. Blodgett and others of Detroit. She was valued at $12,000. Two other Lake Erie wrecks, the schooners SAWYER and STEWART, are still on the beach, the former at Avon point and the latter near Fairport. Capt. C. E. Benham refused to superintend wrecking operations on the SAWYER, on account of insufficient wrecking facilities furnished by the underwriters. The schooner BAVARIA, a canaler ashore near Goderich, Out., will prove a total loss. She was owned by Capt. Fraser of Sarnia.
