The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
British Whig (Kingston, ON), 12 Jul 1895

Full Text



Arrivals: Schr. Acacia, coal; Passport, Toronto; str. Bon Voyage, Charlotte; str. Corsican, Montreal.

The schr. Queen of the Lakes in entering Oswego harbor lost the lower half of her centreboard, which was broken off.

Passed Port Colborne: str. Averell, Chicago to Ogdensburg, general cargo; City of Owen Sound and barges, sch. J.G. Worts, Ontonagan for Collins Bay, timber.

Arrivals at Garden Island: Schrs. S.H. Dunn and Emerald, from Toledo with oak timbe; str. Traveller returned from taking steam pumps to str. Beaver, sunk near Cornwall.

The str. St. Magnus has been abandoned to the underwriters. The surveyor's figures were made up and show that the damage to the machinery and hull amounts to $17,500. This, together with the loss of $3,000 on the outfit and other losses, brings the total up to $21,000, which makes the boat a constructive total loss. A lawsuit is almost certain to follow.
