Elevator at Goderich, Ont. Burns Out and Two Fish Tugs Were Sunk
Goderich, Ont., Nov. 6. -- The Grand Trunk elevator, containing a large quantity of grain, was completely destroyed by fire. The fire spread to Dyments & Rutson's lumber yards adjoining and from thence along the whole water front.
      Two of the fleet of eight tugs belonging to the Buffalo Fish Company lying in the harbor were so badly damaged by the floating burning logs that they sank. The others, one at a time in great danger, got out safely.
      The schooner TODMAN was also partially burned. The wind changed at the critical moment or else the whole of the shipping would have been destroyed. As it is the loss will be very heavy.
      Schooner TODMAN, Capt. Lawson, Goderich. damaged to the extent of $300.
