Ocean (Barge), aground, 15 May 1872

Full Text

The barge OCEAN bound for Tonawanda with lumber, struck the reef near the International Bridge yesterday afternoon. A portion of her cargo will probably have to be lightered in order to float her.

The barge OCEAN which early in the season was shipwrecked near Buffalo, laden with lumber passed here for the first time since that event yesterday morning, in tow of the stmb. NEPTUNE. The OCEAN has been partially reconstructed and now has an arch running fore and aft her entire length. She is in trim for business once more.
