SUBMERGED WRECK A MENACE TO NAVIGATION
Detroit, June 8. - The wreck of the steamer OSCAR T. FLINT, which burned to the water's edge in Thunder Bay, Lake Huron, last fall, and sank about a mile and a half off Alpena, is causing considerable anxiety to vessel masters who navigate in that vicinity. Recently the steamer S.C. McLOUTH stripped her wheel on a projection of the wreck while entering Alpena, and the case has been reported to Col. Townsend. The contract for the removal of the remains of the FLINT was let nearly a month ago, but no action has been taken by the contractor so far. Vessel masters are warned to keep a sharp lookout for the wreck, as it is not marked by any flags or lanterns.
