While towing the disabled schooner E.M. Portch from North Bay to Chicago on Friday evening, the tug Parker mistook Horn's Pier for the canal, and ran the vessel with in one hundred feet of the beach when she struck on the reef. After about an hour's of hard pulling the tug succeeded in releasing the Portch and at about 11 o'clock that night arrived in the canal, where both craft remained until morning when they departed for Chicago. It will be remembered that the

Portch was disabled by the loss of her centre-board.
