A SCHOONER MISHAP
Collingwood, April 29. -- The schooner HOMER, from Chicago bound for Midland, ran aground on the Western Islands in Georgian Bay, during a heavy fog last week. The tug SUPERIOR went to her assistance and brought her to this port today to go into drydock. She is not badly damaged, and not making much water, she has on board 8,000 bushels of damaged corn, which has been purchased by one of our local firms, and is being unloaded at the dock now.
