p.1 The Tug Castle - Detroit, Mich., Nov. 8th - While the big Buffalo tug Castle was running at full speed up the river, where she has been engaged off Bar Point, attending the big dredge, Port Huron, yesterday, the steering gear suddenly parted, and the tug steered off into the Canadian bank, running out about five feet all around, and then dropping over one side in very shallow water.
