On Saturday the mail line steamer Spartan got stuck on a sand bar in Belleville harbor and all her efforts to get off were unavailing. The steam barge Resolute tried to pull her off but was unable to do so; it was found necessary to send to Deseronto for a tug. The tug and the barge between them got her off about one o'clock, Sunday.
