Mistook Anchor Fleet Flag For Distress Signal

Erie, October 26. - It was the fleet flag of the Anchor line flying at the forepeak of the steamer S. C. Reynolds, recently chartered by that company, which was mistaken yesterday for a distress signal by the lifesaving crew at Ashtabula. When the Reynolds arrived here today, Capt. Herrick reported at the custom house that he had been chased by the tug and life-savers while passing Ashtabula, but as there was nobody on his steamer who seemed to need saving, he had kept his ship on its course for this port.
