The Gunboat Rescue - This steamer in accordance with the custom of the Government to lay up the gunboats at the different lake ports in winter, has taken up quarters at Hamilton. It is a significant fact to notice that the last time the Rescue entered that port, she carried a number of the wounded from Ridgway. The vessel was rebuilt during the present year. In the summer she was engaged in conveying troops to and from Kingston; since then she has been wrecking. A working crew remains on board during the winter under the command of Captain Thomson the sailing master.
