Description
Full Text

The brig BANNER, during the gale of Friday night, had reached within two miles of Tawas when struck by the squall, when both anchors were let go. Her chains parted and the vessel got under way for the river. Owing to the blinding snowstorm she was led astray by her compass and struck on the reef at Point Au Barques, and to prevent her going to pieces, was scuttled. She will probably prove a total loss. The BANNER registers 431 tons burden, and rates A 2, valued at about $17,000. She was built at Conneaut, Ohio in 1847 and received a thorough rebuild in 1865.
