Description
Full Text

      Cleveland, Oct. 21 - The prop. CALEDONIA and consort NORTHWEST left port last night coal laden. The steamer did not attempt to pass a line to the schooner until they were outside, and then in some way they got a line in her wheel. The sea was running high and the wind blowing hard, and both vessels dropped anchors, the masters concluding to remain where they were until morning. A tug which went out to ascertain what was the matter encoutered such heavy seas that she returned with a foot of water in her firehold.
