"Vessels carrying freight for the Syndicate have been singularly unfortunate on the Georgian Bay this season. First the NELLIE SHERWOOD, loaded with flat cars, &c., went down with all hands off Cabot's Head; then the GEORGIAN was piled up on Club Island and had her cargo damaged; and lastly the KINCARDINE had to be run on an island near Little Current to keep her from sinking and her cargo was also damaged.
