Full Text

The tug W.A. MOORE arrived here yesterday afternoon with the schr. IDA KEITH, which was dismasted off Grand River during the gale last Saturday night. The KEITH's mainmast is broken off about 12 ft. above the deck, her foremast and mizzenmast are gone at the head, and her jibboom and bowsprit carried away. The vessel was completely covered with ice and her crew had suffered terribly since the storm began.
