DISASTERS - An Associated Press despatch dated Collingwood, October 22nd., says: "The schooner PHOBE CATHARINE, of Picton, loaded with 120 barrels of coal oil for this port, ran ashore between Horse Island and Manitoulin, in the late gale, and is now scuttled.

      . . . . .

      Severe gales have been raging on the lakes during the past week. Among other disasters we notice that the schooner PHOBE CATHARINE, of Owen Sound, went ashore between Horse Island and Manitoulin, and was scuttled in four feet of water. It is believed she can be rescued. She had a cargo of oil for Collingwood.
