Towed To Goderich But Could Not Make Harbor.

Goderich, Ont., Nov. 15th - The steambarge India picked up the schooner Marine City forty miles north of Thunder Bay. The schooner, loaded with pulpwood, had been abandoned three days before that. The India towed her to this port, but was unable to make the harbor on account of the terrible north-west gale which was blowing. During the night the schooner broke away and, it is reported, has drifted ashore about 12 miles from here, with four of the India's crew on board. The India made the harbor this morning.
