Full Text

ACCIDENT TO THE CORINTHIAN. -- On Saturday afternoon the CORINTHIAN stopped at Brighton, C. W., and took on a large number of cattle, and in coming out of the harbor, ran on the crib of a sunken pier and there it lodged. Fears were entertained that she would be seriously injured as almost every effort to get her off was unavailing. Finally the cattle were crouded overboard, and the vessel lightened enough to swing off. The cattle swam ashore and were reshipped, and arrived here nearly on time. Thanks to the steel plates of the CORINTHIAN, who was uninjured. -- Rocherster Express.
