Full Text

Port Huron, Mich., Aug. 31. -- During the gale last Sunday evening the little schooner HOME was lying at anchor below Port Huron, on the Canadian side. The wind blew her ashore, where she struck a rock and a hole was stove in about midships. She now lies with her stern on the beach and her bow over the channel bank. The hold is full of water. There is a chain leading from the boat to the shore, which keeps her from rolling over. The crew are encamped on the beach, near the vessel.
