Marine Accident. – On Saturday morning, as the steamer A. H. Schultz, Captain Hill, was in the act of turning round to leave Rocketts for Chickahominy river, she was forced by the action of the wind on to the marine railway, where she stuck fast until relieved by the assistance of the Virginia Towing Company’s boat, the David Currie, that succeeded after sundry vigorous pulls, in getting her released from her unpleasant location. The Schultz did not sustain any damage of consequence, and the accident only delayed her trip for an hour or two.
