CORSICA CAUGHT ON BREAKWATER
Steamer Goes on Rocks at Ashtabula Harbor.
Ashtabula, O., Nov. 5. -- Toningt at 8 o'clock the steamer CORSICA, bound out of this harbor light, ran onto the rocks which form a portion of the west breakwater now under construction. Although no word as to the cause has yet reached here, it is supposed that some accident occurred to her machinery.
Three tugs went to her assistance, but found it necessary to call the life-saving crew in order to get lines to her. There is quite a sea, but it is not thought that the boat is in any danger.
The CORSICA is one of the vessels of the Pittsburg Steamship Company and carries 3,000 tons.
