      During the darkness last night the schr. GEORGE FOOTE, grain laden from Chicago to Maitland grounded on the shoal off Snake Island, the spot occupied some days past by the schr. DEFIANCE. Messrs. Calvin & Breck's powerful tug WILLIAM, under the management of Mr. James Donelly, went to her relief, and after some hours work succeeded in effecting her relief. The water in Lake Ontario being unusually low at the present time, the danger of the shoal off Snake Island is much increased. - Kingston News.
