The steamer ASIA arrived at Windsor from Duluth on Tuesday. On the upward bound passage she took on 1,000 barrels of salt at Goderich for Duluth and her captain reports encountering large quantities of ice off the port of Southampton and on Lake Superior. The ASIA was signalled 140 miles east of Duluth by the QUEBEC of beatty's Line, the latter being hard aground, and after some hours of hard pulling and parting an 8-inch line she succeeded in getting her off.
