To Investigate Wreck. Canadian Government to Look Into the Loss of the Marsh.

The Kingston Whig says: An official investigation by the Dominion government into the foundering of the schooner George A. Marsh with the death of twelve persons is taking place at the scene of the wreck between Pigeon island and Nine Mile Point.

Shortly after eleven o'clock on Saturday the government steamer Grenville which patrols the waters around Kingston, left to make an investigation into the causes of the wreck. The boat is under government orders and a thorough inquiry into the matter will be made. A report is to be made by the captain of the steamer Grenville to the Department of marine and if the ill-fated vessel is considered to be in a position where it will endanger the lake and river traffic it will either have to be salvaged by the owners or blown up by the government. It is reported from Belleville that J. J. B. Flint, who was part owner with the late Captain J. W. Smith, will have the vessel raised.
