Description
Full Text

Sand Beach.---Sunday morning the MOCKING BIRD towed the Canadian schooner MARQUIS inside the harbor, in a water-logged condition. The MARQUIS left St. Michaels Bay Friday morning, and when about forty miles outside, her steering gear became disabled and she became unmanageable and wallowed in the trough of the sea until Saturday night, when she was sighted by a steambarge, off Point au Barques which called a tug. The MOCKING BIRD responded and picked her up. The tug has gone to Port Huron for a steam pump and will tow her below.
