Full Text

MARINE ITEMS.---"The schooner TIBBETTS, which went down near Port Burwell in a
storm some time ago, has gone to pieces and her coal cargo is almost completely washed away. Carter Bros.,sent their wrecking lighter, the BAY TRADER, to the scene of the wreck with their new coal steam pump, and the outfit was on Monday taken to Port Colborne with about 100 tons of coal from the wrecked vessel's cargo. The pump worked admirably, and had the TIBBETT's held together they would have saved the entire cargo."
