Detroit Post & Tribune; The steambarge ISAAC MAY, which has been on the rocks at Byng Inlet, arrived down on Saturday in tow of the tug PRINCE ALFRED, supported by four pontoons. The MAY's bottom is in such bad condition that she will not float long enough to go into the dry dock. Mr. Donley, who is in charge of the job of raising the barge, will have divers go down, and, after placing some planks on her bottom, spread a sail under her in such a way that she may be pumped out and docked. The MAY looks very bad, her stern being much chafed by rubbing against the barge SEVERN, which was on the rock with her.
