p.2 Propeller Magnet - The tug William passed the scene of the disaster to the propeller Magnet this morning shortly after five o'clock. The men were then at work, and reported that they had raised the propeller twelve feet already, having only made a beginning towards the close of last week. A rope is attached to the shore so that while the vessel is being raised she is at the same time gradually drawn into shoal water.

The Sunken Steamer Comet - The American tug Relief has been making observations in the vicinity of the wreck of the steamer Comet (the old Mayflower) sunk about seven years ago in very deep water a short distance beyond Nine Mile Point. The diver of the Relief says that no great difficulty will be experienced in raising the Comet. As yet, however, nothing has been done, as it is not quite certain that leave will be granted to the Relief to raise the vessel, even should the owners of the Comet determine on engaging her.
