Lake Ontario (Propeller), C, aground, 1 Jun 1883
- Full Text
The steamer HIRAM CALVIN succeeded in pulling the propeller LAKE ONTARIO off the shoal. She ran upon it near Morrisburg. The steamer was proceeding at full speed at the time of the accident and the shock was very severe, throwing those who were standing on board off their feet, and shaking up everything generally. There was considerable alarm among the passengers, amounting almost to a panic, but order was soon restored.
