      The brig SUNNYSIDE, of Buffalo, loaded with coal for Chicago, went ashore about a mile further up the coast, between Thunder Bay Island and the main land. The captain and the balance of the crew of the life-saving station went to the rescue of the crew and safely brought them off. The damage to the vessel is not known, but it is thought she can be saved.
