Full Text

Muskegon, Oct. 29. -- The schooner NELLIE HAMMOND was caught on Lake Michigan by the sudden change in the wind yesterday afternoon, and the terrific northwest gale which set down upon her soon made the little schooner unmanageable. The crew kep her afloat and put for this port. When almost within safety she was swept against the south pier and knocked to pieces.
      The cook and mate jumped on the pier as she struck and were saved. Capt. Lewis Nicholson was washed overboard and drowned.
