Ashore at Presque Isle.

While en route from Toronto to Alexandria Bay the steamer Cambria went ashore opposite Presque Isle light this morning. She is hard and fast on the clay bottom. She had between 300 and 400 excursionists aboard at the time. The steamer Varuna made several trips and landed these at Brighton. She also tried to pull off the Cambria but was unsuccessful. Some of the passengers remained at Brighton. Others went on down to Belleville. A message received at three o'clock said the Cambria had been pulled off.
