Full Text

A telegram from Metocheville, 23 miles from Montreal, announces that the propeller LAKE ONTARIO is sunk or aground. The propeller left Kingston on the 15th for Montreal after discharging 7,000 bushels of wheat from Toledo. Capt. John Donnelly, wrecker, left with the steamer WATERTOWN and steam pumps to raise the propeller. The Rapids will be run in order that the trip may be quickly accomplished.
