Full Text

Nothing definite has yet been heard of the barge BRALEY, of the ALLEGHANY' s tow, which broke loose Sunday. The captain of the tug JOHN OWEN, which arrived at Cleveland Wednesday, reports seeing a barge ashore at Pt. Pelee, which he thought must be the BRALEY. The crew of the barge consisted of E.R. Acton, captain, 2 sailors named respectively Roth and Pursell, one man unknown and the cook Mrs. Georger.
The latest intelligence reports the crew all safe, and says that they arrived in Detroit.

      On Sunday the BOB HACKETT pulled the barge BRALEY off the beach 5 miles east of the Dummy and towed her to Detroit on Sunday evening. The BRALEY is badly damaged and will require a new stem and a new stern, which she is now receiving on the Detroit Dry-dock.

The barge BRALEY is in the lower drydock at Detroit receiving a thorough overhauling. She will be out in a few days.
