p.3 Stuck In The Canal - The Geneva, in making her trip to Cape Vincent yesterday, was unfortunate enough to stick in the mud at the further end of the Wolfe Island canal, where she was detained for several hours. Desperate efforts were made by the officers of the boat to release her by steaming up and calling in the assistance of a couple of steambarges which happened to be passing; but notwithstanding this, it was only after the Water Lily had tugged and pulled and broken a couple of lines, and the passengers had been removed to the promenade deck of the steamer, that a deliverance was effected. The Geneva came home by the head of the Island, and arrived in town about 11:15 p.m.
