Napanee, Oct. 31 - The schr. LAURA, of Windsor, a new vessel built only a few months ago, dragged her anchors and went ashore last night in a gale at the Upper Gap of South Fredrickburgh shore. She lies hard on, being light, and the seas breaking over her. She had just made a trip from Chicago to Kingston with wheat and was returning light. The gale from the south still continues, and has driven her nearly out of the water.
The tug WELLINGTON, of Garden Island, has gone to her assistance.
