THE INDIA ON A REEF.
She Lost Rudder And Drifted Ashore Below Four-Mile Creek.
New York, May 18. - A special to the Times from Erie, Pa., says the steamer INDIA of the Anchor Line is on a reef below Four-Mile Creek about 350 feet from shore. The INDIA was bound from Buffalo to Erie for a Chicago cargo.
In the thick weather and swell from yesterday's gale on the north shore the vessel got in too close and lost her rudder. She then drifted ashore. Lake men doubt very much if the vessel can ever be gotten off.
