Full Text

On Tuesday morning as the bark GOLDEN WEST was being stern-towed to a slip below the Rush Stree bridge, Chicago, her anchor got caught in the river, causing her to swing around. Her jib-boom came heavily against the mainmast of the small schooner HORNET, and carried it away, and the foremast followed it. - Mil. Wisconsin.
