Capt. John Donnelly has left with pumps, hawsers and diving bell in order to rescue the schr. George Thurston aground at Byng Inlet. He leaves Midland tonight on a wrecking tug.

About three weeks ago the certificate of the tug F.A. Folger ran out. The owners was notified by the Customs' authorities and since that time the tug has been lying idle awaiting inspection. Mr. Joseph Taylor, the Inspector, is in Toronto on Departmental business, consequently the examination cannot be made. The Customs will not allow a permit though the tug is entirely new. The tug could be employed every day. A great loss to the Wrecking Company is being incurred. Today several vessels were to be towed up the Bay of Quinte, and had to lie here for 24 hours awaiting the arrival of another tug.

Life Boat - The life boat for Prince Edward county is now being constructed at Buffalo. It will be a strong wooden surf boat, manned by six men and a captain, and will probably be stationed at Weller's Bay.
