Tempest (Schooner), U24589 ?, aground, 25 Nov 1883

Full Text

Two Rivers, Wis., Nov. 25. -- The schooner TEMPEST, of Milwaukee, called to the life-savind crew for assistance at 11 a. m. The vessel was in East River and pounding heavily on the bottom, and there was no tug here. The life-saving crew immediately boarded her with sufficient lines to haul her off, and brought her into the West River, where she lies in perfect safety. The TEMPEST suffered considerable pounding, and had she not been released she would have soon sprung a leak, as she is 17 years old. She is cordwood laden.
