Charlotte, Oct. 31 - The stmr. LEWISTON, Oswego to Duluth with coal, stranded about 18 miles west of here during the gale and rain storm last night.
The stmr. is supposed to be on a flat rock, with 16 ft. of water under her stern. The wind today is decreasing, but considerable of the sea is running and the stranded boat may suffer heavy loss.
The stmr. FLORENCE YATES, with wrecking outfit, was hurried to the LEWISTON this morning. The LEWISTON was formerly the SUSAN E. PECK.
She is owned by Capt. John Green of Buffalo and is valued at $90,000.
