Gananoque, Ont., Oct. 26. -- The propeller DROMEDARY passed here this morning for Montreal about 7 o'clock, loaded with flour, and when passing through the narrows, about five miles east of Gananoque, she struck a rock, and had to be run ashore. She now lies in about eight feet of water, above Fiddler's Elbow. Steam pumps and other assistance has been sent for. It is thought she will have to go on dry dock. Low water is the cause of the accident.
