Full Text

Kingston, Ont., Nov. 28. -- We experienced a heavy gale on this lake last night, accompanied with snow and sleet. The steamer ARMANIA went ashore on the head of Amherst Island, and the tug ROBB beached the schooner HENRY FOLGER at the Old Fort Toronto while trying to tow her to one of the elevators. The ROBB and EDSALL have been working to release her today without success. Captain Donnelly, the most experienced and successful wrecker on this lake, has now gone to her assistance with the tug CHIEFTAIN.
