      PROBABLE LOSS OF THE SCHOONER " NORTH CAROLINA," WITH ALL ON BOARD. - The Muskegon Reporter says: "The schooner NORTH CAROLINA left Black Lake, in this county, on the evening of the 26th ult., which our readers will remember, was the evening preceeding the late violent gale on Lake Michigan, bound for Milwaukee. Aaron Ingraham, Esq., George Wheeler, and two other passengers, whose names we did not learn, and a crew of seven men were on board. The principal part of her freight was railroad ties. She has not since been heard of, and we understand from Capt. Johnson, of the KITTY GRANT, that on Sunday last he saw a large quantity of railroad ties floating in Lake Michigan, about twenty miles from Black Lake, some of which were picked up by his men, but they were unable to find any marks or other means of identifying them. Mr. Ingraham was a man universally respected."

      Disasters
Mysterious Disappearance of a Vessel. On Thursday, the 26th of May last, the North Carolina, a vessel engaged in the lumber business, left the port of Black Creek, in this county, with a cargo of white oak ties, a crew of six men, and two pasengers. The Captain of the Holt reported seeing the North Carolina about ten miles from shore, opposite Point Sauble (sic), the next day. A squall arose soon after, which lasted a half an hour, after which he saw nothing more of her. It is feared all are lost. - - - G. Haven Clarion.
