p.2 Supposed Loss of Yacht Queen On Lake Ontario - they later turn up all right. [Leader]

-The hull of the barque St. George, wrecked near South Bay Point in the severe gale of last autumn, was brought into port on Sunday and placed upon the railway. Capt. Robert Gaskin of this city a few days since purchased the wreck and all the rigging and sails from the Hon. M. Cameron for the sum of 450 pounds, and after procuring the services of two tug steamers and three powerful pumps from Oswego, was enabled to place the St. George on the ways within eight hours from the starting of the pumps, at a cost of $900. An expenditure of 400 to 500 pounds will make the vessel equal to what she was before her loss, when she was considered one of the largest and best on the lake. It has been a fortunate speculation for the present owner.

-large raft of oak timber in tow of steamer Magnet, broke up off Cleveland.
