The wrecking steamer MAGNET arrived at this port on Tuesday evening having in tow the barque NORWAY of Kingston, which had been ashore at Pelee Island sine the previous Thursday morning. The tugs WILCOX and ANNA DOBBINS worked at her till Saturday and could not move her till the arrival of the MAGNET on Saturday evening. It was so rough outside that before the NORWAY was released she had lost her deck load of 24 sticks of timber and was leaking badly. After leaving LaLiberty's hawser here she proceeded on to Detroit with the NORWAY, where the latter will be repaired.
