Full Text

Reports that the fins schooner LIZZIE A. LAW, grain-laden, from Chicago, was ashore in the Straits, between Old Mackinaw and Cheboygan, Saturday. She was supposed to have gone on during a fog. When the RANNY passed she had her canvas set and an anchor out, and her crew were heaving her off with the capstan. As she displayed no signal of distress, the RANNY did not go to her. before the RANNY got out of the Sraits the crew of the LAW had succeeded in getting her afloat. The LAW is now in Buffalo.
