Full Text

During the stormy weather last week the schr. E.M. PORTCH, of Chicago, had her rudder disarranged and labored for 5 hours in the trough of the sea. The captain reports her escape from foundering as very narrow. The storm he says, was the fiercest he has ever experienced. She was on Lake Erie.
