Ariel (Schooner), aground, 1 Oct 1860

Full Text

The vessels ashore on Long Point prove to be the schooners AERIAL - no cargo, and the schooner T.G. SCOTT - no cargo.

      The tug E.P. DORR goes after the schooner AERIAL today, ashore on Long Point, Canada. The weather is good, and there is a fair prospect of getting her off. She was not insured.

      QUICK WORK - SCHOONER AERIAL OFF - The tug E.P. DORR left this port Thursday night at 10 o'clock, to get off the schooner AERIAL, ashore at Long Point, Canada. She succeeded in getting her off without damage, and returned to this port with her Friday night. The vessel was badly ashore - her stern in 18 inches of water - requiring strong pulling to ger her afloat. She was insured.
