Description
Full Text

An aged and dilapidated hulk called the BIRCHER of Erie, with a cargo of staves, came in last evening during the blow and sustained such injury from a collision with the pier and ship SUPERIOR, that she sank to the water's edge during the night. Her mainmast, starboard bulwarks, lanyards and anchors are all gone, with a general annihilation of Russia duck.
