Full Text

Dispatch to the Inter-Ocean from Cheboygan: -- The schooner PRIDE OF AMERICA lost all her head sails in a squall last Saturday, and is leaking badly. She was towed into port, and is awaiting orders. She is iron laden for Milwaukee.
The schooner UNADILLA lost a man overboard off Forty Mile Point in the same blow. He lost his foothold from the jibboom and dropped, and before the boat could be lowered he had disappeared. He shipped from Detroit, and was recently from the Marine Hospital, and named Martin mOrrison. The UNADILLA lost her flying jib and split some of her fore-and-aft sails. She is light for Escanaba.
