The steamer Bermuda is aground below Morrisburg. She went on about nine o'clock Sunday morning, and Calvin's wrecker has left for the scene. The Bermuda has been carrying pulpwood from Quebec to Oswego all summer, and on this last trip she has been rather unfortunate, running aground twice. She has now been two weeks out from Quebec, having been aground in Coteau Lake. The steamer Kenning which was windbound here over Sunday, will probably be taken down as a lighter.
