Full Text

The steambarge CHARLES RYAN, 404 tons burthen, owned by Thomas Ryan of Buffalo, left Midland for Buffalo last Thursday, with the barges JOURNEYMAN and E. COHEN in tow. The RYAN was loaded with 500 tons of ice. When ten miles off Port Austin Saturday afternoon, she sprang a leak and sank. The crew escaped in the yawl and were cast about for three days. One man was drowned. She strated to sink about 10 P. M. The RYAN's quarter went under and with a heavy roll she turned bottom up and sank.
