The tug I.P. DAYTON arrived in port last evening with the prop. EVERGREEN CITY, rescued from the beach at Port Maitland. The propeller has been docked at the Union Shipyard, where, we believe, she will be converted into a tow-barge, her machinery having been taken out previous to her being pulled off. The boat did not appear to have sustained any material damage.
