Thus far the present season the steam wrecking barge MONITOR, Captain Gil Traverse, has succeeded in obtaining 400 tons of iron ore from the wreck of the schooner EMPIRE STATE, 80 tons from an unknown vessel lying inside of Middle Island. 180 tons from the schooner NESHOTA, sunk in 1872, and 250 tons from the schooner WAVERTREE, upon which the barge is now at work. After all is taken from the latter craft the MONITOR will go to the wreck of the schooner BUCKINGHAM; sunk in Black River Reef, about a mile beloe Black River Island.
