The Wanderer's Rough Trip. The little schooner Wanderer arrived in port Tuesday morning with a cargo of peaches from Arcadia, Mich. The craft was out in the southeast gale of Monday night and Tuesday morning, weathering the terrific storm in fine shape under the skillful management of Capt. Dan. Seavey. The skipper reports the loss of his yawl, the tremendous seas having filled the boat with water and washed it from the davits. The yawl is 16 feet long, square at both ends and painted lead color. The boat was lost when about 20 miles off the canal and from the direction of the wind would probably go ashore in the vicinity of Baileys Harbor. Captain Seavey also reports that a large two-masted schooner passed him about daylight Tuesday morning that was evidently in distress, her flying-jib and raffee (unsure?), being in shreds and part of her load being missing. He was not near enough to make out the name of the vessel.
