The tug TORNADO, which was sent up to Thirty Mile Pt. for the purpose of getting off the schr. McINNIS returned to port last night, not having accomplished her object. It was found that the vessel had 5 ft. of water in her hold, and as the tug had no pumps aboard, it was deemed useless to attempt to release her without them. The TORNADO left here this noon with a couple of pumps, and it is thought she will have no difficulty in getting the vessel off. She lies on a smooth rock bottom. The McINNIS was bound from Hamilton to Owen Sound, light and went ashore Wednesday, in a fog. - Oswego Times.
