The Schooner Winnie Wing in Trouble - Napanee, Oct. 10th - The schooner Winnie Wing arrived in the harbor, Tuesday, with a load of coal for the Electric Light company. Mr. Shipman reports a very trying trip. They left Kingston almost a month ago for Sodus Point, owing to the fog they could not make the harbor and a gale arising, they were blown across the lake and spent a week or more near Trenton, and again they met difficulties. Coming up the Napanee river they ran on the mud and had to lighten before they could be towed to the wharf to unload the coal.
