Full Text

The schr. ARROW which during the recent gale was driven ashore at Pt. Au Pelee is reported thus in good condition. The greater portion of her cargo is yet dry, but nearly all will have to be lightered out. That which is wet or damaged will be thrown overboard. The tug SATELITE, which has been chartered to get her afloat returned yesterday from the scene of operations for a vessel to receive the cargo, when it is expected she will be got afloat.

      The schr. ARROW, which during the recent north-east gale, went ashore at Pt. Au Pelee without damage to her hulk. The greater portion of her cargo was saved in good condition, and not exceeding 3,000 bu. may be considered as lost or damaged. The tug SATELITE, which performed the service of getting her off, under the command of Capt. Hiram Ames, was quick to the rescue and skillfully managed throughout. Mr. Williams, agent for the Western Insurance Co. and also in conjunction in the undertaking, whose consuls were well timed and all important in the accomplishment of the work from the first to the last.
