The wrecking tug CONQUEROR arrived here on Sunday morning, with the steambarge GEORGIAN in tow. The GEORGIAN was sunk a couple of weeks ago, while taking 2,500 bbls. flour to Algoma Mills. The flour was unloaded at the dock here preparatory to the GEORGIAN going into dry-dock, and most of it was found to be badly damaged by water. --- Times.
