Propeller Stranded

A despatch from Cheboygan Mich., states that the Canadian propeller Cuba, bound down with grain, stranded on Grey's Reef at 4 o'clock on Sunday morning in a fog, and is full of water. The captain went to Cheboygan for help and employed the tug Favorite, which left with a full wrecking outfit. A part of the cargo is being pumped overboard, and it is expected that the vessel will be released on Wednesday morning. The Cuba has a full list of passengers and about 20,000 bushels of corn bound from Chicago to Montreal. The passengers are safe but have had their trip cut short by this mishap. They have been forwarded to their destination by other boats and rail. The steamer belongs to the Chicago and Montreal Transportation Company, of Toronto, which has hitherto been lucky with its boats. The cargo is fully insured. The owners here state that the despatch is true.
