Propeller S.C. IVES, ashore near Lake Port, Lake Huron. Got off. Property

      March 11, 1861. (Casualty list, 1860)

      . . . . .

      The steam tug S.C. IVES, Capt. J.M. Lundy, has gone ashore about 8 miles above Fort Gratiot, on the American side. She is "hard on." The IVES was employed by the Arctic Insurance Co., to get off the schooner RUSH, and had succeeded in placing a steam pump on board and running a line to the tug. The sea was very high. By some means the line fouled in the wheel of the tug, stopping the engine, and rendering the tug unmanageable. She was washed up high and dry on the beach.

      In consequence of the rough weather on Lake Huron for the past day or two it is feared that the tug IVES, hard aground on Lake Huron, may suffer seriously, and probably go to pieces.

      Capt. Glazier, Marine Inspector, has returned by the stm. DART from where the tug IVES went ashore on Lake Huron. Both tug and vessel are well out on the beach, but as yet has sustained little or no damage. By the aid of more anchor and chains it is thought they may be got off.

      The tug S.C. IVES has been got off by the tug ELLIOTT and towed a short distance into the lake, where she could get up steam. Her damages are trifiling.

      The steam tug S.C. IVES came down yesterday from Port Huron, to land some materials which had been sent up from here to get her off the beach. Her damage is but slight. She returns again to make another effort to get the scow RUSH off, which vessel is yet ashore there.
