Description
Full Text

A heavy fog prevailed on Lake and River St. Clair THursday night and made navigation exceedingly dangerous. During the darkness and fog the large freight propeller MONTANA ran hard aground near Vicksburg. The tug SWAIN was sent to her assistance, and, together with the propeller BUFFALO, pulled at her almost all day, but without success. The SWAIN broke several strond hawsers in the attempt to get her off. It has been found necessary to lighten her and a wrecking fleet will be sent to her assistance.
      The steambarge C.H. GREEN also ran aground on the Middle Grounds at Port Huron, but was easily released.
