The loss of the old barge DETROIT and the schooner WILD ROVER removes from the records of Lake Shipping the vessels which have served well and faithfully for many years. The DETROIT was the first built propeller of Detroit, was 200 tons burthen and came into commission in 1845. She was got up by J.W. Lawson, a well known forwarding merchant in those days. The WILD ROVER was in her 19th year and was built at Fairport by Wilson & Fountain. The DETROIT terminated her existance at Point Abino and the ROVER two miles above Long Point.
