The Maritime History of the Great Lakes

Full Text

We learn from a passenger on board of the GEN. WAYNE, which arrived from Chicago yesterday, that while at Manitou, the master of the PHILADELPHIA, reported that while on his way down, he passed the spar of a vessel standing above the water, with a green bough attached, tike those used by vessels from the Upper Lakes, on their way down. As there had been such tempestuous weather on Lake Michigan and Huron, it is feared that some vessel may have been lost.

      In relation to the vessel, the mast of which has been frequently seen, the Chicago Express of the 16th says, "Some days have now elapsed since the upper part of the mast of a vessel, with a green bough attached, was seen standing above the water in the neighborhood of the Manitou Islands. It has been seen from several vessels, but the name of the unfortunate craft has not yet been ascertained. As the L. CHICALONI has been no where reported below, and as she had a bough attached to one of her masts, she is presumed to be the vessel lost. She probably went down in a gale. All on board must have perished."

      NOTE:- The schr CHICALONI is mentioned as in the River St. Clair in April and May of 1844. Therefore she was not the lost vessel.
