The Port Huron Wrecking Company will commence work on the wrecked schooner SUNNYSIDE at Sand Beach as soon as the ice permits. After she is off they will work on the propeller CITY OF St. CATHARINES, and after she is up they will raise the tug JOHN PRINDIVILLE, ashore at Presque Isle.

      The pontoons that are being sent from Chicago to Port Huron are to be used on the SUNNYSIDE, and not on the wrecked schooner SWEETHEART.

The schooner SUNNYSIDE arrived here yesterday in tow of the tug MOCKING BIRD. The vessel had a steam pump aboard. She was raised with the assistance of pontoons. The work was performed by the Port Huron Wrecking Company. She is not in bad condition, only the bottom planking being now understood to be damaged. She expects to go into the Globe Dry Dock some time today.
