Barge Onondaga In Trouble - The Onondaga, one of the three barges in tow of the tug Wm. Gardner, jr., broke loose from the tow, last night, and went on to the Galoe (sic - Galoo ?) Island shoal. The tug, which took the other two barges to Cape Vincent, attempted to get off the Onondaga today, but it is not known here that she succeeded. The barges are laden with coal, and bound to Montreal. [Oswego Times]

The Hiram A. Calvin went to the assistance of the Onondaga with a barge, but had to return for another one. It was not possible to work today on account of the gale blowing.

The storm drum was ordered up today at 11 o'clock, and cautionary signals were sent to all the lake ports.

Yesterday afternoon while the schr. George Suffel was trying to make Cunningham's wharf she ran aground on one of the sunken piers opposite McCorkell's dock. She was got off without damage about 5 o'clock, and lay at Cunningham's wharf all night. She loaded lumber today for Oswego.
