Captain Cramer , propeller MAINE, reports passing steamer MARINE CITY ashore midway between Crawford quarry and Presque Isle on mainland yesterday noon, a large tug, presumably the CRUSADER, endeavoring to release her. A large schooner was also reported ashore on Middle Island Reef as sundown yesterday, with a tug working to get her afloat. Both went on during a fog. The tug MOCKINGBIRD has been sent to the vessel's assistance.
