STEAMER RAMAPO AGROUND ON BAR POINT.
      Amherstburg, Ont., Dec. 12. -- The steamer RAMAPO, bound down on the last trip of the season, passed here at noon today and then went hard aground on Bar Point. She is out two feet aft. The tug HOME RULE worked on her for some time, but was unable to release the steamer, and the wreckers SAGINAW and WALES have joined in the effort. It is thought part of the cargo must be lightered. The weather has been thick for the past few days and the wonder is that more boats have not gone aground with the aids to navigation removed.

The release of the Steel Trust steamer RAMAPO from the bottom at Bar Point, Lake Erie, was effected early yesterday morning. A portion of her package freight cargo had to be lightered.
