p.2 Nearly A Wreck - prop Pittsburg strikes East Pier at Port Stanley and damages forefoot. Prop Acme takes part of cargo.

The sinking of the bark City of Ogdensburg the other night by the steamer Ontario made it rather exciting times for the crew of the bark. In less than three minutes after the shock the vessel was on the bottom of the river in 80 feet of water. The vessel's yawl was got out, and stood by to pick up the crew. The captain, mate and cook, took to the rigging, but she went down so fast as to take them under. They rose to the surface and were picked up. When the steamer struck her all hands were asleep. [Ogdensburg Journal]
