Full Text

The tug SATELLITE arrived at this port and will soon be put in running order again. Her pilot house and cabin work attached to the same is entirely gone from her decks; also her smokestack. Her engine is intact, and comparatively uninjured, while the hull has sustained no harm worthy of mention. She passed through a terrible ordeal, and but for the fact that she is of unusually strong build, she undoubtedly would have gone to pieces. The body of the unfortunate Mr. Stewart had not, up to latest account been found.
      (no date or source taken ?)
NOTE:- The accident happened at Pointe Aux Barques in April 1871 .
