Aground - This morning a three masted vessel, name unknown, in sailing into port, grounded on the bar off Point Frederick. She was light, yet so firmly beached that it required the united strength of the tug Lady Franklin and H.M. Mixer to remove her from her precarious position. Her hull was damaged to that extent that it was deemed necessary to have her towed to the Portsmouth Marine Railway for caulking and repairs.
The Propeller Lake Michigan - This craft, which ran aground yesterday morning on the shoal opposite the wharf of the Canadian Engine and Machinery Company, lightened some 4,000 bushels of her cargo into a barge, and was then safely floated into deep water. She sustained very slight damage. Last evening she proceeded to Montreal.
Steamboat Convention - A meeting of steamboat and ship owners has been appointed to be held some time during the latter part of September, at Cleveland, to discuss the interests of of steam and sail navigation. A statement at that time will be presented to the meeting of all the disasters or casualties of a serious nature which have occurred during the season of 1872, which will be confined chiefly to steam vessels. Another matter of more than equal importance will be the revision of existing enactments relating to the peremptory clauses of the steamboat law, which require the use of certain patented inventions, many of which are not only costly but inefficient, and every year brings forth a series of them.
