The Garden City a Total Loss – We learn from the Chicago Democrat that the Garden City with 1800 barrels of salt and 66 tons of car wheels for Chicago, which went ashore Tuesday night on Little Point Sauble, is a total loss. On Sunday, the tug Salvor, Capt. Keaho, was sent to her assistance with three steam pumps and succeeded in floating her and started for Grand River. She had only been towed about ten miles on her way when she went to pieces and sank. Capt. K. succeeded at the imminent peril of his tug and the lives of himself and crew, in saving two of the steam pumps, but the third and most valuable one worth $8000, was carried down with the sinking craft and is a total loss as she lies in twenty fathoms of water. – Milwaukee Sentinel , October 20, 1858
