p.3 The Gale on Lake Michigan - The Chicago Press of the 21st gives further accounts of the recent gale. It says:-

It was rumored on Thursday morning that the schooner Forest Grove, a new vessel, made for Racine with her sails set and frozen stiff - and broke through the new pier. As soon as she touched, the captain and crew jumped ashore. Immediately after which the wind shifted and carried the schooner right out into the lake again. She was loaded with fish and lumber.

The brig Hampton and the schooner Minnesota are ashore on the east side of the lake. The former is reported going to pieces. Both crews saved.

The scow Rocky Mountain, with a load of lumber, is ashore north of Racine.

The schooner Nonpareil is reported ashore at Big Point Sable.

There was a painful rumor afloat on Friday that a schooner had been driven ashore below Gros Point, and that her crew were all taken from it, frozen to death.
