p.8 Steamer Bermuda Here - The steamer Bermuda, which ran aground near Morrisburg, several days ago, arrived in the city this afternoon, and cleared for Oswego with her cargo of pulpwood. The vessel was not damaged to any great extent, and only a few light repairs were necessary. The Calvin company completed a good job in getting her off. The steamer Bermuda only stayed here long enough to take on supplies.
