FROM ALPENA - The steam wrecking barge MONITOR is now here and still in command of Capt. Gill Traverse. Her operations thus far this season cover the following wrecks: Schooner NESHOTO, sunk in 1872, from which 120 tons of ore were saved, and in which much more remains. The NESHOTO's sides are intact, but she has worked down into the mud as far as her covering boards, and her deck is all gone. All around her there is a trench about four feet wide and of the same depth, made by the action of the water in rocking the hull too and fro. Beside the iron ore taken out, a fine anchor and large string of cable were recently obtained by dragging a drag anchor. - (part of article)
