p.2 The Propeller Ireland - This vessel, which was driven ashore and afterwards sunk, at Port Nelson, last autumn, was towed into Burlington Bay, on Sunday last, by the steamer Chief Justice Robinson. The ice being still perfectly firm in the centre of the Bay, the vessels could not reach the wharves, which however was not the intention, as the Ireland is to be taken to Niagara for repairs, and is only placed in her present quarters for temporary safety from the weather. The operation of raising the vessel was undertaken and performed by the Messrs. Ives, who own a marine railway at Amherstburgh, and are so well known on Lake Ontario, as experienced sailors and ingenious mechanics.
