      The tug COMPOUND while towing the schr. MOSS up the river this morning struck on the rocks, and being in danger of sinking, was run ashore. She lays at the Willows above Fort Erie, on Canada shore. Tugs were preparing to go to her assistance, with a steam pump, at noon.

      The efforts to rescue the tug COMPOUND, ashore on the Canada side of the river, was so far successful yesterday that she was hauled off and taken down to Fort Erie. She was leaking quite badly, but it was thought the leak could be stopped. Seven tugs and a steam pump were required to haul her off.
