Full Text

The schooner HUNTER SAVIDGE, after lying aground at the head of Harsens Island, was released by the FRON of Oscoda, and arrived at Detroit Thursday morning. She was loaded with lumber for G.W. Larkins & Co., Detroit, and came all the way from Alpena under sail. She was the first lumber vessel to arrive here this season. Two years ago the same firm received two cargoes on April 10, which was considered very early. The firm had to pay 2 per cent, for insurance on the cargo of the HUNTER SAVIDGE, while the regular rate during the season is 27 cents on $100. The freight rate on the cargo was $1.25
