      The schooner GARIBALDI was taken off the shore at Toronto Point in the remarkably short time of sixteen hours after commencing at her. She had a full load of lumber on when she went ashore, which was nearly all saved. The vessel was firmly embedded in the sand, full of water, and only four feet of water around her. Captain Gourneen of the British American Assurance Company, had charge of the wrecking.
