p.3 Steamboat Accidents - We learn from the Brockville Recorder that the steamer Admiral, with an exursion party on board, ran on a shoal between Bluff and Deer Islands, near the head of Grenadier Island, on Tuesday afternoon, and at latest accounts was still on. She was running full speed at the time and was so furiously driven upon the rocks as to place nearly three feet of her hull clear to the paddle boxes out of the water. The excursionists were taken to Ogdensburg on board the steamer Plumb. The Admiral is probably seriously injured. A telegram from Alexandria Bay, dated yesterday, says:
"The Canadian propellor Cuba, which passed here about 5:30 yesterday afternoon only got to the Thousand Island Park where she struck a shoal and is unable to get off. The steamer Faxton has gone to her assistance. She is raised about a foot at her bow. Later - The propellor Cuba worked herself off the shoal where she was aground last night, when she proceeded on her course.
