p.5 Saved Barge - The steamer Iroquois, Capt. John Doyle, formerly of the Bothnia, came into port from Charlotte, Monday night, with two barges coal laden. The steamer was light and a heavy sea was rolling. As she rounded the breakwater the barge Valencia broke away and distress signals were sounded.

The barge drifted down the lake some distance and was being forced toward the beach when the tug Seymour, which went to the assistance of the boat got a line to the drifting barge and towed her into port. The Iroquois loads coal here for Montreal and will take one barge there, the Bothnia taking the other.
