      Tugs Have Been Sent to Pull Her Off Sandy Bottom at Long Point.
In the dense fog that prevailed last night the steamer VULCAN of the Gilchrist fleet, lost her course and went aground just above the Cut at Long Point. Report of the vessel misfortune were received by local mariners from Port Dover this morning, and at 10 o'clock Capt. John Perew and the tugs MASON and CASCADE left to release her. The VULCAN was laden with grain for this port. The report received here is that she struck a sandy bottom and escaped injury. This is the second of the Gilchrist boats to go aground within three days.
