The schooner ABERDEEN escaped foundering in the recent blow only to go on the beach at Grand Haven on Monday, while being towed out of the port after re[airs, by the steamer NYACK. The crew escaped, and the vessel and her cargo will be totally wrecked

It will be noted that the total losses of the present season - 64 vessels of 46,670 net tons' capacity, valued at $1,203,200 - are after all some what below the losses of 1895; but this year the underwriters have suffered heavily in losses on such vessels as the J.H. OUTHWAITE, H.A. BARR, TAMPA, ABERDEEN, ARTHUR ORR, CITY OF ROME, GEORGE PRESLEY, G.B. OWEN and other wrecks, which do not appear in the list of total losses but on which large sums must be paid for wrecking work and still larger items in repair bills. The season was remarkable for its freedom from collisions, and from heavy storms during the early spring and until September, but the mild weather of the summer months was followed by a continuous blow during October, November and December.

The schooner ABERDEEN was placed in drydock for repairs suffered in the recent gale. Her cargo was unloaded at Milwaukee.
