On Monday the steambarge Bothnia, of the M.T. Co.'s fleet, loaded with a cargo of coal for Montreal, went aground in the mud at Lily Bay, a few miles above Brockville.

The steamer Parthia, of the Calvin Co.'s fleet, was sent to the scene, and it was expected that the vessel would be taken off without any trouble.

The mishap occurred just after daybreak. It was supposed that the vessel had sprung a leak, and in order to prevent her from going to the bottom she was beached at the point mentioned.
