STEAMER ROSEDALE DAMAGED
Clayton, N. Y., April 27. - During a heavy northwest gale on the St. Lawrence river last night the steam barge ROSEDALE of the St. Lawrence and Chicago Steam Navigation Company, a large steel boat in the grain trade bound from Prescott, Ont., to Toledo, light, ran on a shoal below Rock Island about 11 o'clock. She was badly shaken up, but Capt. Ewart claims she is not leaking. She was running 12 miles an hour. The steamer was forced on the shoal by a passing tow.
