VESSELS ABANDONED BY THOSE ABOARD.
      MARINE CITY IS DRIFTING ABOUT THE LAKE.
      Black River, November 12. -- The steamer D. F. ROSE and consorts THOMAS HOLLAND, MARINE CITY and BAHAMA, all loaded with pulpwood from Blind River to Detroit, went ashore on Scarecrow island in the fog yesterday afternoon at 5 o'clock.
      After considerable trouble the ROSE, MARINE CITY and BAHAMA were released from the rocks, but the HOLLAND is still fast. The crew, consisting of five men and one woman, were taken off by the life savers from Thunder Bay Island today and were brought here at 4 o'clock. The MARINE CITY waterlogged afterher release and is now adrift on lake Huron The ROSE took off her crew. It is thought that the HOLLAND is not badly damaged and will be got off when the sea goes down
