During the gale of Saturday night the barge C.H. WEEKS broke away from the steambarge SALINE off Sanilac and went ashore near the range lights at Point Edward with a cargo of lumber. The crew were taken off by a willing crew of fishermen. The WEEKS went to pieces Sunday afternoon and is a total loss. She was owned by Mr. Potts of Oscoda and valued at $5,000. All day Sunday portions of her cargo were floating down past the city. The mate of the WEEKS, who was injured while being taken from the boat, died at Point Edward this morning.
      Ashore in the same storm is the LADY FRANKLIN, 1 mile from Lexington, RHODA EMILY ashore at White Rock, MAGRUDER ashore at Sand beach, and the WEND THE WAVE sunk y collision.
