-Vessel Aground - bark Alexandra at Snake Island Shoal, rescued by tug William.

Propeller Moira - The above propeller has drifted about 100 yards from the spot where she foundered, and now lies sunk in 70 feet of water. Her Captain having obtained the assistance of a tug, proceeded, after the accident, alongside of the Moira, but having examined her, found that the uncertainty of the weather would preclude the possibility (or rather advisability) of attempting to raise her this fall. The Captains of the Malta and Victoria have stated that they passed her saloon afloat on the lake, as well as a part of its furniture.

-Imports - 13,14.
