The tug QUAYLE went down on Monday morning and as she passed her officers hailed the steamer HURON and informed them that she had on board the crew of the tug SATELLITE which sunk in Lake Huron Sunday night. All the crew were saved excepting the mate who was drowned. The name of the lost mate was Chester Stewart, who resided on Harsen's Island, near Algonac. He was a young man and just married a few weeks ago. Further information states that the SATELLITE sunk in 14 feet of water near Port Hope. The tug was preparing to take the schooner J.C. KING in tow when she capsized.
