Full Text

On Monday, December 14, 1886 the schooner Ocean Wave, which went ashore near Port Ontario a few days ago, has been stripped of her canvas and rigging and will be hauled out on the shore for the Winter About 2,500 bushels of her cargo have been taken out dry and the rest will be saved. The schooner Comanche, ashore at Point Peninsula, is reported to be lying on a gravelly bottom and as far as can be ascertained is in pretty good condition. It is thought she can be got off and repaired, leaving her good for several years of service. The propeller Myles, which sank in Kingston Harbor several weeks ago, still lies on the bottom. Something over $5,300 has been expended in the effort to raise her and nothing further will be done until ice forms in the harbor of sufficient thickness to allow working upon it. The vessel has been badly broken up by the late storm.
