Capt. William Webb, of the schr. SUMMITT, which became a total loss at Tawas Pt., arrived in Detroit on Thursday. Sometime before the vessel struck the shore her small boat was broken up by the heavy seas, and all had to swim for the beach. In this attempt two perished , the one a seaman lately come upon the lakes from the seaboard, named Charles Hazelbury, a Swede or Norwegian, about 18 years of age. The other was the woman cook, named Goscaw, who shipped at Toledo. She has an uncle, a resident of east Toledo. The SUMMITT was built in 1858, and subsequently rebuilt. She was 3?2 tons burden, old style, and was owned in Cleveland by John Webb and the captain. She was insured.

Parties at east Tawas have buoyed the wreck of the schooner SUMMIT which sank off that port thirty years ago with a cargo of iron ore on board. The vessel went down in 20 feet of water, and the depth over the ore is now but 8 feet.
