Calumet, Dec. 17. -- The tug ADVENTURE, which was in tow of the tug TRAMP, pated the tow line and ran ashore near Octonagon Lighthouse. All efforts to release the boat were unsuccessful. The machinery will be taken out next spring, and the boat abandoned. Two attempts to tow the steamer MARY BELL to Two Harbors have been unsuccessful and the boat goes into winter quarters at Ontonagon.
