Last evening between 12 and 1 o'clock while the tug Glide was passing the foot of Long Island two of her barges, the Nebraska and Toledo, coal laden, ran on a mud bottom. Capt.

He brought the Glide back to Kingston this morning and took down two light barges into which he lightened the stranded ones. They are not injured.
