Full Text

On Sunday morning, the weather being very smoky, the schooner ELGIN ran ashore on a shoal to the westward of Simcoe Island. To get off she was obliged to throw overboard some twenty or thirty pieces of timber. The vessel is now at Garden Island, and Captain Lawson has gone with a tug to find the missing timber.
