p.2 Fast On A Shoal - We learn that the barque Superior from this port, bound to Toronto, went aground on a shoal near the False Ducks lighthouse on Monday morning. The weather at the time was not boisterous, and when she left port on Sunday night the wind was fair. She was abandoned by the crew. We understand she had been insured in the Northwestern Insurance Company of Oswego at their agency in this city only a few hours previous, ie. on Saturday. The steamer Hercules has been sent up to pull her off. [News]
