Relative to the prop. COLIN CAMPBELL and bark S.V.R. WATSON, which are ashore at Bailey's Harbor, a dispatch states that they are in about 3 ft. of water, and there are 300 ft. of shoal water outside of them. It is not known that they have sustained any great damage. The only way they can be released, it is stated, is by a light draft tug dredging a channel to them and then having a hawser pull them off. The WATSON's rudder is broken.
