Full Text

Capt. C. J. Ennes of the steamer LANSING, which arrived today, reports passing through considerable wreckage in the middle of Lake Erie. Window sashes, stairways and a compass box were among the objects noted. Vesselmen here think the wreckage is from the barge SUNSHINE of the PRINGLE tow, which was waterlogged during the gale.
      Also
      Detroit, Nov. 3. -- The barge SUNSHINE of the PRINGLE tow is given up by the underwriters to be a total loss. Only her deckload of lumber prevented her from breaking up during the gale. She was insured with Smith, Davis & Co. for 4,000.
