Final Voyage

"Manitowoc, Nov. 11.--The schooner Mariner, of Chicago, loaded with ties and posts consigned to Horn & Joseph, Chicago, went ashore at Sherman's Bay early this morning in a heavy sea that has prevailed since last evening. She is heavily loaded and pounding hard on the bottom. Her cargo will probably be saved, but the vessel will be a total wreck unless relieved soon. She is opening forward and her bowsprit is carried away." "Maintowoc, Nov. 12 -- The schooner Mariner, of Chicago, which went ashore yesterday morning at Sherman Bay, is a total wreck. She broke in two last evening in a heavy sea and this morning she was abandoned, and is fast going to pieces. Her cargo is coming ashore and will mostly be saved." "Recent research has shown that this vessel was lost at a "Horn's Pier", but not the one within Clay Banks Township."
