Full Text

      Amherstburg, May 10 - Another whaleback is in trouble, being a third in a week. This time it is the barge 109, which struck while coming across Lime Kilns Crossing last night. A large hoel was torn in the forward compartment, which at once filled with water, and the barge was run on the beach at Elliott Point below this city. The barge was in tow of the stm. GLADSTONE, and was bound from Duluth to Buffalo with wheat, it is not thought that her cargo is yet damaged.
