The brig HERCULES, bound down the lake with lumber for Tonawanda, ran ashore east of the piers while trying to get into the harbor. She lies on a sand bottom, and will likely be got off without much damage. The HERCULES' tonnage is 240, and she is owned by W.Y. EMERY, of Port Burwell. The crews of both [NORWAY] vessels came ashore in the small boat. All safe - Port Colborne Report.
