Full Text

The schooner GEORGE B. OWEN, in tow of the steamer W.P. KETCHUM, went on the rocks at Lime Kiln Crossing at 4 o'clock this morning, on account of the towline parting. She arrived here at daylight and a diver and pump were secured. The OWEN had a cargo of corn from Chicago to lake Ontario. It is thought that not much of it is wet.
