The steamer "Kelly" ran aground on the rocks at Alexandria Bay, a few rods from the Thousand Island House, as she was concluding her down-trip on Saturday evening. Passengers and baggage were removed by small boats. One of them contained several trunks, and Mr. Staples was overturned, and there was considerable scrambling very soon after. Mr. S. was hung up to dry, and the trunks opened and their contents taken to the laundry for repairs. The unfortunate steamer was drawn off the rocks uninjured later in the evening by a passing tug, after the "Shoecraft" had tugged away vainly for an hour or so.
