BARGE "SLIGO" ASHORE
Cobourg. Nov. 26.--The steamer JUNO, with the barge SLIGO in tow, bound from Belleville to Toronto, loaded with crushed stone, put back during Thursday's storm to Cobourg for shelter. The tow barge missed the pier, let go her anchor, and went on the beach just west of the harbor.
The Cobourg lifeboat crew, with Capt. Rooney in command, went out to her, but the crew of the barge decided to remain on her. The lifeboat crew kept watch during the night, as a heavy sea was rolling, and went out again to the SLIGO in the morning.
