Full Text

The canal schooner WATERTOWN, loaded with 600 tons of iron ore, ran on the rocks on the northwest side of Plum Island during a heavy fog on Friday night. She is not leaking and it is thought can be got off without much difficulty. The tug KITTY SMOKE went to her assistance from Sturgeon Bay on Sunday.
