Montreal, June 18. - The steamer CAMPANA ran aground off St. Valier De Rellechase, 24 miles below Quebec, while en route from Pictou, Nova Scotia to Montreal, with a large passenger list last night. A panic ensued on board, but subsided after the passengers had been convinced there was no danger. They were transferred to a ferry boat and taken to Quebec.
The steamer has a big hole in her bow, made by a rock and is under water up to her second deck. The salvage steamer STRATHCONA has gone to her rescue.
