She Ran on Charity Shoal in a Fog.

Word reached the city, this morning, that the schooner Annandale had run aground last night on Charity Shoal, situated between Pidgeon Island and the Ducks. The vessel was on her way from Oswego to Kingston and carried a cargo of coal consigned to R. Crawford & Co., of this city. Capt. Thomas Donnelly, of the Donnelly Wrecking and Salvage Company, left about eleven o'clock, this morning, with the steamer Donnelly to effect a release. The Annandale is owned by W. Kerr, Portsmouth, and sailed by Captain Beaupre, also of that village.


The steambarge Navajo arrived at Richardsons' elevator today from Wellington with grain.

The steamyacht Skylark, owned by Hon. Clifford Sifton, is in Davis' dry dock for a few repairs. It will be again placed in quarters here.

The steamer New Island Wanderer has completed her river season, and entered the government dry-dock to have her wheel adjusted. She will take the Cape Vincent route after tomorrow for the balance of the season of navigation.

p.8 The Annandale's Condition - The steamer Donnelly arrived back this afternoon from the schooner Annandale ashore on the Charity shoal. The schooner has settled in a comfortable condition. The Donnelly will take back the lighter Grantham, and part of the schooners' cargo will be unloaded.

Incidents of the Day - William Owens, steward on the steamer Argyle, came down from Picton today to lay up the boat.

Last week the steamer Alexandria carried into Montreal the largest cargo she has ever taken on a single trip.

The steamer Stranger, which received extensive repairs in Davis' drydock, cleared this morning for Smith's Falls.
