Steamer Saturn Ran On a Shoal.

The steamer Saturn, Sandusky to Montreal, with timber, went ashore on the North Charity Shoal around the head of Wolfe Island, in the United States channel, last evening. She was in Kingston harbor yesterday, and cleared in the afternoon. Being loaded to a depth of fourteen feet, the Saturn did not attempt to take the channel around the foot of Wolfe Island, instead of going around the head. Evidently she approached too far towards the shoal before turning down, and it was all off with her. The steamer is owned by the Collins Bay wrecking and towing company, who sent the tug Rival and a lighter to her assistance last night. The Charity shoal is a place of many marine accidents.

p.6 Clearing the Wreckage - Thomas Clancy is at work clearing the coal out of the hull of the burned steamer Hero, removing debris, etc. Very little is left beyond the hull, paddle boxes and name.
