Saturday Night Blow. -- During the blow Saturday night the schooner J. WALTERS, bound from Georgian Bay for this port with railroad ties, attempted to make the piers about 12 o'clock, and ran on the beach. Both anchors were thrown out, but these proved of little assistance to the vessel.
The life-saving crew went to the ship, and the breeches buoy was the means of bringing part of the crew ashore yesterday morning. Some of the deck load was washed overboard, and the remainder was jettisoned. The tug LORMOR pulled her off yesterday noon, the lines being carried to the vessel by Captain Goodwin and his crew. The WALTERS lost her rudder. Otherwise the damage was slight. She is owned by Captain Peters, who sails the KINCARDINE.
