p.3 Marine Notes
Late Information - Capt. Gibson, of the schooner Ariadne, tells the Oswego Herald that his crew and the crew of the schooner Republic took the latter's yawl and followed Moses Dalmage, the sailor who was wrecked, till they struck the Ducks, where they lost him. They landed and owing to the gale did not get back to their vessels till the following night. This information, if made public earlier, might have saved severe censure of the vessels then lying in South Bay.
Western Notes - An American tug has been seized while wrecking in Canadianwaters at the Sault. The propeller Atlantic reports good sleighing in Marquette, and also ice quite thick in the Portage River.
The Speedwell Off - The Palladium says the cargo (lumber) of the schooner Speedwell, which was ashore at Ford's shoals, was lightered Monday. She was pulled off by the tugs Wheeler, Morey and Gardner. Her cargo has been discharged. The damage is not thought to be great.
W.W. - schr. Union stripped for winter below Cape Vincent.
