Description
Full Text

      The barge GEN. BURNSIDE which was taken to Lake St. Clair by the tug CLARA for a cargo of logs, it is feared has become wrecked by the recent gale. She was anchored near the coast off Stony Pt. and doubtless would be unable to withstand the perils of the storm. She is owned in Detroit.

      Murray, a sailor on the schr. BURNSIDE, fell off the jibboom near Muir's drydock at Sarnia, Friday evening, and was drowned. The body has not yet been recovered.
