      The attempt to launch the steamer CITY OF TORONTO yesterday afternoon was not altogether successful, at least as far as getting her afloat is concerned. She made a rapid stride to reach the water, but after moving about 100 feet, fetched up on the bottom, from which position, with the force then at hand, it was impossible to extricate her. It is not impossible but the services of a powerful tug would take her into deep water; if not, it will be necessary to raise her by means of boxes, or otherwise. - Detroit Free Press
