Full Text

Milwaukee, Wis., Nov. 11. -- The propeller St. ALBANS, bound up, ran ashore on Fox Point Reef, 12 miles north of here, during the dense fog at 4 o'clock this morning. The tugs WELCOME and HAGERMAN were dispatched to her assistance, and pullled her off at noon, after lightering fifty tons of freight. A quantity of wood and a few packages of fish were jettisoned before the tugs arrived. The St. ALBANS was running under check when she went on, and, as there was no sea running she escaped injury.
