A FLOATING COFFIN.
Detroit, Oct. 14. -- The barge WAVERLY, ashore near Point St. Ignace. She was built at Sackett's Harbour in 1853, was at one time a barque, and was considered a good one in her day. She registers 262 tons, but has neither rating nor value according to the lloyd's Hull register. The WAVERLY rested on the bottom of the Detroit River for several years and was raised a little over a year ago, when it was found impracticable to rebuild her, and in order to prevent her leaking she was sheaved all over with inch and a half lumber and several iron rods run through her to hold her together. In this shape she has since navigated the lakes in the lumber trade. She is uninsured.
