- Full Text
Amherstburg, March 27. -- The steam barge LOTHAIR, Captain Casey, of Port Hope, Ont., laden with 12,000 bushels of barley, from Kingston to Chicago, went ashore together with her barge, the CORISANDE, on Colchester Reef, at 10 o'clock on Friday night. The LOTHAIR was pulled off by the Canadian tug HECTOR, and towed here today. The CORISANDE is still on: The water is going down, and the wind getting stiff. She is laden with railroad and pig iron for Chicago. The tugs HECTOR and SALTY JACK will go to her assistance. She is a full size canaler. They went aground in the dark, no light yet on the reef.
