Description
Full Text

On Monday the tug BUTLER left Toledo with the schooner B. W. PARKER, coal laden for Glasgow, in tow. At the other side of the crib the SCHENCK took hold of the schooner and started for the lake. The night was dark, but everything went well until Turtle Island was reached. Here the PARKER went aground and stuck solid in the mud, despite the best efforts of the SCHENCK to pull her off, and is now being lightered by the COTRELL and REINDEER.
