p.5 Barge Dunmore Injured - Port Dalhousie, May 8th - The steamer Bannockburn ran past here this afternoon in order to shorten consorts' tow lines before entering the harbor, as the wind was blowing strong from the west. After entering the harbor an exceptionally heavy squall carried the barge Dunmore to leeward so far that she struck the end of the east pier, breaking her stem at the water line and damaging her to such an extent as necessitated her going on the dry dock. The accident will cause her a delay of two or three days at the least.
