Description
Full Text

Manitowoc, Nov. 17 - The scow IDA H. BLOOM, of Milwaukee, loaded with wood and ties, struck a rock near Clay Banks this morning, staving a large hole in her bottom. She immediately filled and sunk in 8 ft. of water. A tug and pump have been telegraphed for at Milwaukee.
      Several telegrams were received here in the course of yesterday from Capt. Murphy. He says the vessel lies about 1,000 ft. from shore, one mile below the pier at Claybanks, with a large rock through her bottom, the water roundabouts being 9 ft. deep. It is doubtful if she can outlive the northeaster which set in after the mishap and last night had increased to a
moderate gale. In case she should the tug HAGERMAN with a steam pump will be sent to her assistance. The BLOOM is owned by Capt. Patrick Murphy, her master, and Thomas Robinson, of this city, the former 1/3 and the latter 2/3, and is uninsured.

      Manistee, Nov. 19 - The scow IDA H. BLOOM, ashore near Claybanks, has received no assistance yet, and fears are entertained that she will share the same fate of the MARINER, as a high sea has been running since morning.
