Yesterday afternoon the steamer Pierrepont towed the schooner Fleetwing, coal laden for the cotton mill, below Cataraqui bridge. When nearly abreast of the spile dock the schooner ran on a sunken wreck and went hard aground. She is out about a foot forward. The Pierrepont was unable to release the stranded schooner, pulling her towing out (sic) in an effort to pull the schooner off. She will have to be lighted before she can be moved.
