p.2 Some Smoke - So dense has been the smoke at times during the past week, that navigation upon the River St. Lawrence has been seriously impeded. On Saturday morning last, it was so dense when the Bay State came down, that she had to slacken her speed, ring her bell almost constantly, and actually feel her way to the Depot, in doing which she missed her course and grounded upon the bar, where she lay all day Sunday, with the steamers New York and Ontario tugging to get her off. Towards night the steamer British Empire, Capt. D.S. Allen, arrived from Montreal, came to the rescue, and with a long and a strong pull and a pull all together, drew her out of the clay in which she was strongly grounded. No damage occurred, and the Bay State took her departure as if nothing had happened. [Ogdensburgh paper]
