Full Text

WRECKING. - Captain Noble, commander of the schooner HIPPOGRIFF, arrived Marquette at few days ago to arrange for an investigation of the schooner MARQUETTE, which went ashore at Grand Island last fall. He is expected to recover her anchors, chains, and perhaps her capstan, wheel, etc. Captain Robinson, of the tug DUDLEY, will likely be engaged to do the wrecking. Capt. Nobel's vessel, the HIPPOGRIFF, lies at Escanaba.
