Description
Full Text

A dispatch from Sault Ste. Marie reports the propeller D.W. POWERS is sunk near that place. Her main deck is four feet under water. Two unsuccessful attempts have been made to raise her. The sender of the dispatch, Mr. L.B. Trempe, has undertaken to float her, and will employ a tug, lighter, and three steam pumps, and has strong hopes of accomplishing the work. He has already recovered a portion of her cargo.
