AGROUND PECHE ISLAND. - At three o'clock Sunday morning, when abreast of Peche Island, bound down with the schooners H.W. SAGE and IMPERIAL in tow, the tug CASTLE succeeded in landing them both on the bottom. After about two hours hard work she released both of them in a somewhat damaged condition. The mate was on watch at the time. The cause of the trouble we were unable to learn.
