THE INGERSOLL ASHORE.
      ON THE BEACH AT STATE LINE.
Intelligence reached Chicago during yesterday afternoon that the steamer R.J. INGERSOLL is ashore near State Line, Ill., on this shore of Lake Michigan. She is lumber loaded, and was bound for Chicago. It is supposed that the fog which has prevailed was the cause of the disaster. Should no storm arise, however, she will doubtless be rescued. The INGERSOLL was built at South Haven by McMullen in 1881, and is owned by Kennedy, of Waukegan. She measures 70 tons, rates A 2 ½, and is valued at $10,000. Partly insured.

State Line, Ill., Sept. 12. -- The steambarge BOB INGERSOLL, Muskegon to Waukegan, with lumber, ran ashore at this place at 5 o'clock this morning during a heavy fog. The crew unloaded part of the cargo and released the craft about noon. She was not damaged to any extent, as there was no sea at the time of the accident.
