BUFFALONIANS ON STRANDED BOATS.
      Steamers CASPIAN and NORTH KING Go Ashore on Lake Ontario.
The big lake steamers, CASPIAN and NORTH KING. Are both ashore on Lake Ontario, according to dispatches received here this morning by J. W. Klauck, from the agent of the line at Kingston. Both were ashore this morning.
There were a number of Buffalo passengers on both boats. No one is in any danger and all will be taken in other boats to their destinations. The CASPIAN ran ashore in a fog near Belleville last night and is resting easily on sand.
The NORTH KING broke her crank shaft at an earl hour this morning. Unable to make steerage way, she drifted ashore and now rests on a gravel beach near Port Hope. The service of these boats to and from Charlotte is indefinitely suspended.
These ships ply between Rochester, Thousand Islands and Canadian ports. It is believed, however, that it will be possible for the line to resume service within 24 hours.
