BARK MOJAVE ASHORE. -- This fine vessel, which cleared from here a few days since for Toledo with a cargo of hay, is reported ashore at Middle Island, on the southwest side and is about six inches out forward. She had been to Toledo, discharged her freight, and was on her return bound for Pigeon Bay for a cargo of wood to take to Chicago. On Tuesday night, as our informant states, the weather thick and foggy, she struck with the above results. The tug BOB ANDERSON, with the requisite hawsers and other material, left yesterday forenoon to go to her relief, and will without doubt succeed in getting her afloat ere she sustains and serious damage. -- Detroit Adv., 11th.
      Buffalo Commercial Advertiser
      April 14, 1864

NOTE:-- It would appear that the MOJAVE was got off from the April 1864 casualty, and met with disaster later the same year.
