Maritime History of the Great Lakes
Telegraph (Schooner), sunk, 1 Oct 1827
Full Text

For several days past we have had a continued storm of rain, and some hail, which has been productive of considerable damage, and dentation of vessels and steam-boats on lake Ontario. The fine schooner Telegraph, owned by Wm. Chisholm, Esq., of Nelson, we learn, lies under water, at the Burlington Bay canal, having on board a full cargo, outward bound. The steam-boat Niagara, Capt. Mesier, put out on Saturday last, for Prescott, from the mouth of the Niagara river, but it was deemed prudent to return in the evening, on account of the gale on the lake, where she was obliged to remain for several days.
