The Tug CUMMINGS lies exactly in the same position in which she was first sunk, wedged against the wharf and abutments. Capt. McLeod of Buffalo, agent of the insurance Companies, is in town and has inspected the wreck and is receiving bids for the work on removing the tug. The Harbormaster this morning told Capt. Mcleod that he would give him a reasonable time to get the hull out of the way, but would not permit long delay, and if the matter was not attended to at once the Board of Public Works would take it in hand, if they had to use dynamite to remove it. - (condensed Oswego Report)
