p.5 Ashore On Calf Island - Oswego, Aug. 16th - The steam barge Orion, loaded with 125 cords of pulpwood, the property of the Battle Island Paper company, was reported ashore on Calf Island, twenty-eight miles below this port by Captain Woods of the steamer Ringleader on his arrival here yesterday. At the time the Orion was sighted a flag of distress was flying from her mast-head.

The captain of the Orion informed Capt. Woods that he had run his boat on a shoal Wednesday night, while attempting to make Sacket's Harbor against high seas. The crew of the Orion put their personal effects in a boat and rowed to shore. The Orion is said to be in danger of breaking up. The representatives of the company in this city are making efforts to start a relief boat at once.
