Owen Sound, Nov. 30 - Last night the crew of the schooner MOUNTAINEER arrived here in the Griffith Island Lighthouse boat, and report that the MOUNTAINEER was driven ashore on Griffith's Island on Wednesday night. It is thought that she must go to pieces, as the weather is heavy. She had no cargo.

      Last Friday the tug OKOARA succeeded in hauling off the schooner MOUNTAINEER, which was driven almost high qand dry ashore on Griffith's Island last fall. She brought her into port on Saturday, and she is now undergoing repairs. Her damages are slight considering the position she was in all fall and winter.
