Detroit, Nov. 4. -- Advices to L. B. Fortier state that the schooner HUBBARD, bound up with coal, is ashore at Muskegon. Capt. Rice has gone to her assistance, and pumps have been sent from Detroit.. The hull is insured and probably the cargo. The HUBBARD is valued at $10,000...
A Correspondant of the Detroit Free Press writes from Muskegon November 1st. -- "The schooner HUBBARD loaded with coal, bound from Sheboygan to Chicago, got on the beach during the big storm of Saturday afternoon, and three gentlemen from Muskegon ventured out in a yawl and got the sailors off, but while returning were swamped twice. The sailors were nearly frozen by the cold. It is reported that the schooner is split. An effort will probably be made to get her off.
