p.2 Ashore - The steamer Corsican left the harbour yesterday on her trip up the lake, but such was the state of the sea that she had to run into South Bay for shelter. On attempting to get out this morning about 4 o'clock she ran aground on South Bay Point where she now lies with six feet of water in her hold. Her passengers were taken off by the steamer Algerian, which was on her way up. The purser of the Corsican came down on the Magnet for assistance.
