Agnes and Louisa

Screw-Steamer Ashore at South Shields

┬áThis morning, about one o’clock, a dense fog set in on the Tyne, and continued until about seven o'clock. During the prevalence of the fog, while the screw-steamer Agnes and Louisa, Captain Hodgman, London, from Portsmouth for the Tyne, in ballast, was making for Shields harbour, she got far to the south, and went ashore stem on near the end of the Fish Pier, where she still remains. The steamer is not considered in a bad position, and it is expected she will be got off.
