Brock (Schooner), lost two cannon, 1 Oct 1838


Description
Full Text

The hermaphrodite schooner 'BROCK,' lost two of her guns during a little squall on Lake Huron, a short time ago, which, it appears, were not secured against such an emergency, doubtless, owing to the supposition by the salt water gentleman who commands the vessel, that fresh water is not jubject to such severe agitions as the "brimy deep." He is now, however, convinced of the contrary, and has made for some port on Lake Ontario where he will refit.
