Full Text

The weather of the past few days has been so stormy that a number of disasters have happened on the lakes. The water has been very low in the river and several steamers have ran aground. The steam barge KERSHAW ran ashore on Grosse Isle below Alexander House Thursday of last week and only got off yesterday afternoon. The PITTSBURG went ashore on the lower end of Fighting Island and the propeller CITY OF NEW YORK near the KERSHAW on Tuesday, but were got off yesterday morning. The schooner JAMES WADE is ashore on Pelee Island.
