Vandals on Shipboard.

Parties supposed to be at enmity with Edward Buckley and Capt. Charles Gnewuch are said to have boarded the steamer Edward Buckley at Manistee a short time ago and indulged in wholesale vandalism. The outfit of the steamer had been placed on board for the season and received the particular attention of the vandals. With an ax they smashed in and cut through all of the doors of the cabin and converted the furniture into kindling wood. In the captain's room the desk was wrecked, a clock and barometer smashed, and the carpet cut into strips. The engine room was also visited. There among other things the vandals smashed the steam gauge, water glass, and other articles that happened to catch the eye. The destruction is said to have been complete. A rewark [sic: reward] of $200 was promptly offered for the discovery of the wreckers, but thus far they have eluded detection.
