1877 December 17San Francisco Bulletin - The Colusa Sun of the 15th instant has the following concerning the sinking of the barge Governor Hayes in the Sacramento River:  Last Sunday morning the barge Governor Hayes, in tow of the steamer Dover, Captain Brewington, ran on a log at what the boatmen call 20-mile bend just below the Grand Island mills, and sunk. It seems that she made it over the log, but broke and went down, nose foremost, in 18 feet of water. She had on board 10,300 sacks of wheat, worth at Jacinto, $3 a sack, belonging to Dr. Glenn. Some 3,000 sacks were taken off the barge in a more or less damaged condition, and was sold at from 25 to 75 cents a sack. The barge has been raised, and will not be a total loss. The loss on the wheat is about $30,000. We learn that was fully insured. It seems that this log lies in a short bend of the river, where it cannot be avoided, and that it has given more or less of trouble to all the boats on the river. It was no one's business however, to remove it, although a small job, and so it remained. The Government ought certainly to give us a small appropriation towards keeping the river free from snags. If the Government will not, it would pay Colusa County to have a small amount of work done.~
