FROM BAILEY'S HARBOR. -- The tug LEVIATHAN arrived from Bailey's Harbor yesterday with the disabled propeller FOREST QUEEN in tow. The latter, it will be remembered, went on the rocks at Bailey's Harbor last fall, and after being taken off by the LEVIATHAN, remained there during the winter. Her hull was comoletely covered with canvas, which, with the aid of steam pumps, kept her afloat while being towed up. She went into Wolf & Lawrence's dry dock to be repaired. ---- Milwaukee Sentinel, 15th.
