Quebec (Propeller), C71212, aground, 9 Jul 1886

Full Text

The propeller QUEBEC is again in trouble. After months of trial and great expense in raising her from the bottom of the Sault she is now ashore at Presque Isle, Lake Huron. The tug INTERNATIONAL, while en route with her from Collingwood to this port, towed her on to the beach during thick weather at the place above stated. Being a Canadian tug the INTERNATIONAL dare not undertake the task of her relief. The tug GLADIATOR, which left here yesterday, will make an effort to release her, but with faint hopes of success.

      The propeller QUEBEC was released from where she went ashore at Presque Isle by the tug KATE WILLIAMS on Sunday last, receiving but little damage during her brief stay there. She arrived in the St. Clair River yesterday noon, and on her arrival here will be taken to the dry dock for repairs.
