North Tonawanda, Oct. 9. - The schooner PAIGE, with lumber for Willoughby & Hathaway, went aground while trying to make that Company's dock in the North Tonawanda harbor yesterday afternoon. The boat had to be lightered, and even then much trouble was experienced in getting her off. The tugs did not accomplish the schooner's release until 5:30 o'clock in the afternoon. A sandbar near the dock was the cause of the trouble.
