Bay Queen (Scow), gale damage, 2 Nov 1863

Full Text

THE STORM OF SUNDAY NIGHT. - By the steamer PIERREPONT from Cape Vincent we learn yesterday that the Brigantine OCEAN lies at anchor off Fox Island, rudderless, and it was feared she would go ashore. The scow BAY QUEEN, laden with barley for Oswego, when off that port was struck by the gale, and lost mainsail, foresail and forestaysail, and ran down to near Cape Vincent. The PIERREPONT went out on Tuesday evening to the relief of both of these vessels, but the wind being squally, it was thought prudent to return without accomplishing her errand. - Kingston News.
