LOW WATER IS REPORTED ALL OVER THE LAKES.
      Several Inches Below Normal In This Port This Morning.
      Vessels Grounding All Over The Lakes.
      That capable ally of spring gales, low water, has been much in evidence all over the lakes this spring, and the number of vessels aground increases every day. The steamer J.J.H. BROWN of Buffalo, coal-laden from Toledo to Milwaukee, went hard aground on the Limekilm crossing on Tuesday night and a considerable part of her cargo is being lightered for her release. The SCOTTISH HERO struck at the entrance to Midland harbor yesterday morning and was badly damaged. The lighter PROGRESS, the KATE E. HOWARD and the CRESCENT CITY had narrow escapes in the storm, and the WILLIAM A. PINE which went aground on the newly discovered shoal at the intersection of the St. Clair Flats canal range and the Isle Aux Peches range and it will be seen that this spring has been a fairly exciting one on the Great Lakes.
