p.3 Ashore At the Ducks - Late last evening Mr. J. Swift, one of the owners of the sch. B.W. Folger, received a telegram from Mr. A.G. Cook, of Oswego, stating that a vessel had just arrived at that port and reported that there was a vessel ashore on the south side of the Main Ducks. It was thought to be the Folger. Judging by the direction of the wind on Monday Marine Inspector Taylor felt confident that the vessel referred to was the Folger. The news of the vessels probable safety soon spread and there was considerable rejoicing among the friends of Capt. B.J. Ryan. As the vessel was ashore in Canadian waters the tug Active (M.T. Co.'s line) was engaged to go to her relief this morning with a lighter. At Garden Island a steam pump was taken on board. Capt. Donnelly, the wrecker, will superintend the work of floating the schooner. Capt. Gaskin and Mr. Jas. Swift also went on the expedition.
