ACCIDENT TO A TUG
Manistee, March 14. -- The tug WILLIAMS, of this city, belonging to Canfield's Tug Line, while on her way from Ludington last night, with two passengers on board, broke her engine off Point Sauble, and stove a hole in her bottom. The accident totally disabled her, and she was about to sink when the hands succeeded in stopping the hole. A man in a boat was sent to the shore, who reported here early this morning, and the tug FRANK CANFIELD went to her relief. She was picked up fifteen miles southwest of Ludington, where she had drifted, under a northwest wind, and arrived here late this afternoon, all hands safe.
