Full Text

One of the largest tows ever brought to this port by a small sized tug arrived in tow of Capt. Miller's tug HERCULES Sunday night. It was composed of the following schooners: MONTBLANC (which was bound up, but forced to lay by at this port to repair damages occasioned by the tug CITY OF ALPENA running into her. The ALPENA, while attempting to pick up the schr. LAKE ERIE, ran into her, carrying away her bowsprit and head gear); NARRAGANSETT, loaded with coal from Buffalo, for Keith Bros., of this port; the W.H. ROUNDS, loaded with coal from Buffalo, for Chase, Hall & Co., and the MINERAL STATE, which having discharged her cargo of deals at the Canada Southern crossing, returned to this port to load the lumber which formed the ONTONAGON's late cargo.
