STEAMER KINCHELA |
Aground on Spit.
PORT MACQUARIE, Friday.
The steamer Kinchela is aground on the Ballina spit. The bar Is very bad, and crossing in at 1 a.m. to-day the vessel was dragged on to the bar, working away north until she wab held fast on the spit.
The steamer is in a safe position, wire hawsers having been made fast to a couple of anchors and a Nvall. It may be possible to heave the Kinchela off on to-morroNV morning's tide, but failing that she may be held until the full-moon spring tides.
