Full Text

On Thursday night of last week the Canadian propeller COLUMBIA, Capt. Kennedy, ran aground on the foot of Fighting Island. The tug HECTOR, which was passing, tried to pull her off but not succeeding came to this port for Kevill's barge, when 3,000 bushels of wheat and 40 cords of wood were taken out of her and she was pulled off on Friday evening. The steam barge SALINA got aground near the same spot but was pulled off by the tug GLADIATOR.
