Amherstburg, October 24 - The stranding of the MERRIMAC on Sunday night was caused by the wheelman mistaking orders. The wreckers SAGINAW and WALES lightered 400 tons of iron ore. Water is gaining 3 inches an hour over the pumps. A diver is on the way here from Detroit to make an examination as soon as the steamer is afloat.
