Muskegon, Mich., Nov. 12. -- The schooner PRENTICE BOY, while making this harbor Sunday morning during the heavy sea, struck the south pier and damaged her bow considerably. She will go to Grand Haven for repairs. The schooner CHAPMAN shortly afterwards struck the lumber pile on C.D. Nelson & Co.'s mill dock, near the mouth, and had her canvas and rigging damaged. A heavy sea rolled all day, but no other accidents occurred here.
