THE PLYMOUTH RELEASED.
North Tonawanda, May 29. - After having nearly 300,000 feet of her cargo of 800,000 feet of white pine lumber lightered, the barge PLYMOUTH, which grounded at Strawberry Island while coming down the Niagara River Saturday, was released yesterday afternoon by the tugs, BIRD and CONSTITUTION of Tonawanda. Low water and the narrowness of the channel were given as the cause of the grounding. The channel has been narrowed on account of the operations which government is carrying on at that point. No damage was apparently sustained by the vessel, which came down the river in tow of the tugs that released her.
