p.4 Unknown Yacht Sunk - Detroit, Sept. 23rd - Capt. Bronty, of the schr. Glad Tidings, reported at Algonac that on his last trip down from Kincardine, when about fifteen miles due west of Southampton, he sighted a black steam yacht about seventy feet long, with one pole spar and grained cabins. Distress signals were flying, and on the deck stood a man waving a torch. The schooner came to, but before arriving at the disabled yacht the latter went down. He waited around to rescue any of the crew who might be in the water, but could find none of them, although he had seen three men on board her.
