- Full Text
IN SEARCH OF LOST FREIGHT. - The steamer MAGNET has gone to the wreck of the schooner W.O. BROWN, which has been sunk below Bar Point, if possible, to recover her cargo, which, as is supposed, lies undisturbed on board of her. The BROWN was sunk by collision with the Bark A.P. NICHOLS in September last, and was freighted with 380 tons of coal and 125 tons of pig iron. The latter commodity it is thought can be readily recovered. The effort will be made to raise the vessel, repair her, and put her once more into commission. - Detroit Free Press.
