Description
Full Text

Several captains of vessels report being misled on Sunday night, while trying to make our harbor, by a bright red light north of the pier. The schooner ARROW, with a cargo of wood, came so near in shore, supposing she was making the harbor, that she could not claw off, and her anchor was dropped, but the cable parted, and she went ashore just north of the piers. She will be got off without serious damage. - Chicago Tribune, 26.
