Tugs And Barges Aground.

The tug McNaughton, towing three barges with grain for Montreal, went on the shoal opposite Point Airy at the three black buoys Friday morning. The tug Antelope went to their assistance, and the strong current also sent her on the shoal. The cause of the McNaughton's grounding was the heavy north wind, which has been blowing for three days. The barges are out about two feet, and the tugs are a little better off.
