      Schooner ARABIA, loaded with ties for Chicago, was brought into Owen Sound waterlogged, in tow of the Tug MARY ANN. The schooner ran aground on Hay Island in a storm and was got off, badly damaged, by the tug, her cargo of ties was a lucky one this time, had she been loaded with anything else, of a sinking nature, she would have gone to the bottom as soon as relieved. She will go into dry-dock for repairs, and will unload her ties for the winter.
