The Toronto Mail says: "Vessel owners and captains are wanting to know when the wreck of the schooner TRENTON is going to be removed from Presque Isle Harbor. The fall gales will soon be coming on, and the mouth of the only harbor on the north shore, between this and South Bay, is rendered almost unavailable.."
