THE WHITAKER ASHORE.
      Port Dover, Ont., Oct. 16. - The steamer WHITAKER went ashore at Long Point Saturday night. She was bound up the lake, light, drawing 11 feet of water. After losing her anchor and chains during the gale she jumped the bar on which there is about three feet of water and is now lying between the bar and the shore. The crew are here safe after having rowed 18 miles.
