      . . . . .

      Nothing has yet been done to recover the tug DRAGON sunk on Windmill reef. During the recent heavy wind she rolled over on to her side. Her damage must be serious.

      We learn that the owners of the tug DRAGON, Capt. Brown & Son, have abandoned that vessel which is still on the reef. The Underwriters will take charge of the wreck.
