ASHORE IN GEORGIAN BAY.
      The small side-wheel passenger steamer CAMBRIA of the Windsor - Soo line with a few passengers from Detroit, Windsor and other points, went on the rocks near Algomah Mills, Georgian Bay, in a fog last Friday afternoon. Two tugs made an effort to release the craft but failed, and hydraulic jacks were to be used next. As the coast is rocky the CAMBRIA's bottom has suffered more or less damage. Her measurement is 400 tons.
