Full Text

SCHOONER M. BALLARD. -- This vessel it will be remembered, was last fall, partially wrecked on Lake Superior, and there remained until quite recently. She has been raised, and is now on the way to this city for necessary repairs. What saved this vessel from becoming a total wreck was her superior strength of build. Aside from a few holes in the ship's bottom, she has in no wise been displaced by the fury of the tempests. Contrary to the speculations of all concerned, it will require but a comparatively small sum to place her as good as new. -- Detroit Free Press
