Greenhaugh's steam lighter has returned from Fairport, having raised the Schooner TIBBITS and got her safely inside. The deck load of stone, was first lightered, the centrifugal pump was then put to work, and the stone in her hold taken out as fast as the water was lowered. The leak was discovered to be under the garboard streak, one end of which had loosened. The TIBBITS will be towed to Cleveland for repairs as soon as possible.
