Kingston, Dec. 5 - Charity Shoal has claimed another victim. The steamer Rosedale went on that dangerous spot last night, and is now exposed to a strong southwest wind and a rough sea. Tugs are unable to help her, and it is feared the steamer and cargo will be seriously damaged. The Rosedale is laden with 60,000 bushels of Manitoba wheat from Fort William, and had nearly reached the head of the St. Lawrence river when she struck.
