Caroline A. Bemis (Brig), aground, 27 Aug 1852
- Full Text
The brig BEMIS, Jeffords, cleared from this port yesterday morning with
a cargo of 5,400 bu. wheat and about 1,800 bbls. flour; owned by Messrs.
Henderson & Pettibone. When about 15 miles out she sprang a leak during the
gale in the evening and was compelled to return. She reached the mouth of
the Bay about 12:00, when becoming waterlogged and unmanageable, she
grounded near the shore in 6 or 7 ft. of water, a short distance below Cedar
Pt. Light House, where she now lies with 5 ft. of water in her hold.
A portion of the cargo will be saved in a damaged condition, but we
learn was fully insured. The vessel was also insured and will be got off
without material injury.
