Young America (Propeller), U27515, aground, 1 Aug 1874

Full Text

The party sent out from this city to recover the cargo and other paraphenalia of the stm. YOUNG AMERICA, sunk near Oak Orchard, Lake Ontario, has succeeded in accomplishing all that was desired. Besides recovering the cargo which was indestructable, they raised the boiler, engine and most of the tackle. The expedition was on board the schr. H.D. ROOT. She has arrived in port with all the material, which will probably be disposed of at auction next Tuesday.

It appears that the sale of the cargo and effects of the wrecked stm. YOUNG AMERICA did not bring more than $3,000. Not a very large margin for profit, we should imagine.
