The barge HARVEY BISSELL, which was tied to an outer dock, has been broken to pieces by the storm. The barge VINELAND, coal laden, broke away from her tow barge last night and is aground off Alpena. The Thompson Line steamer CITY OF HOLLAND is on the rocks near Rogers City, but the crew is in no danger. An unknown steamer is reported aground on Presque Isle.
