She passed the Jack Straw light safely, but ran foul of the shoal between that and Gordon Island. Every effort to release herself proved futile, a message was sent to Kingston, and one of Calvin's tugs from Garden Island came down and pulled her off, about two o'clock Saturday afternoon, after being on the shoal about twelve hours. It is understood that she suffered no particular damage.
