The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
British Whig (Kingston, ON), 5 Dec 1874

Full Text

p.2 Cobourg, Dec. 4 - Capt. Williamson and the crew of the Star, which was driven on the rocks at the Ducks off Kingston, arrived safe home this morning. The vessel is not as badly damaged as was reported. The crew were rescued from the wreck by an American vessel. There is a good deal of hard feeling here against the people of Kingston for not going to the rescue of the crew when they knew of it. They waited till the owner of the Star from Cobourg got to Kingston.

p.3 The Stranded Vessels - The steamers Chieftain and Hiram Calvin, after taking the sch. Babineau & Gaudry off the Amherst Island shore safely, are trying their fortunes with the schr. Star, at the Ducks.
