      The Milwaukee Sentinel says: "The wrecking tug OSWEGO, now lying up at Milwaukee, will be fitted out on the first of the coming month and proceed to McGulpin's Point to get off the schooner C. NORTH, wrecked last fall.
She will then pass over to the east end of the North Manitou, for the purpose of getting off the barque AMERICAN REPUBLIC. She will be well supplied with steam tugs and all requisite appliances."

The steamer SEA BIRD went over to Mackinac on Saturday, where she found the tug LEVIATHAN, from Milwaukee, which reported a good deal of floating ice near the Beavers. She had some difficulty in getting through, but, as the weather has been warm since and not a little rain fallen, the heaviest ice has probably dissappeared before this time. The LEVIATHAN was at Mackinac for lighters, with which to get off the schooner C. NORTH, aground at McGalpin's Point. In coming down, the SEA BIRD met vessels off Presque Isle, bound for the upper lakes.
