Description
Full Text

AN UNLUCKY BOAT.
It is said that the old propeller ARAXES, now finally sunk, met with more mishaps and disasters than any other craft of her years in the whole history of lake navigation. In 1856 her hull cost new $29,000. One shipyard and dry-dock alone finds bills against her (all paid) of $49,233,57. Add to this single charge the work done on the ARAXES at other yards, the wrecking jobs she has been the cause of, and the other extraordinary expenses she has incurred.
