Disasters to Lake Shipping

Gananoque, Ont., Oct. 27 - The propeller Droniedary, which passed here yeserday for Montreal with flour, when passing through the Narrows, about five miles east of Ganonoque, struck a rock and had to be run ashore. She lies in about eight feet of water above Fiddler's Elbow. Steam pumps and othr assistance have been sent for, but it is thought she will have to go on dry dock. Low water is the cause of the accident.

Chatham, Ont., Oct. 27. - The schooner S. & J. Collier commenced leaking badly Saturday about fifteen miles below Rondeau, Lake Erie. She was kept free by her own pump and is now lying at Walkerville, where she will discharge her cargo of rye. The captain noted a protest at Windsor last night, but thinks her cargo is uninjured.

Toronto, Ont., Oct. 27. - Orders have been given to the wrecking tug Leviathan to cruise among the islands and as far down as the straits to help disabled vessels.
