      The tug E.P. DORR left last evening to get off the schooner T.G. SCOTT, ashore at Long Point, Canada. She will probably have her in tonight, or tomorrow morning, as she is quite successful in that line and makes short work of her wrecking jobs.

      The tug E.P. DORR returned yesterday from the schooner T.G. SCOTT, ashore at Long Point, Canada, without being able to get her off. Her bottom was so bad she could not be pumped out. She will be stripped and abandoned.
