Full Text

Detroit Free Press: The schooner CLAYTON BELLE, loaded with iron ore from Escanaba, in tow of the steambarge FRED KELLY, went ashore yesterday forenoon on the north side of Presque Isle, Lake Huron. She is reported eighteen inches out, and it is thought can be got off without much difficulty. The tug OSWEGO left last evening with a steam pump and hawser, which she will transfer at Port Huron to Captain Grummond's new tug MARTIN SWAIN, and the latter will at once proceed to the rescue of the CLAYTON BELLE.
