Among the vessels driven ashore in the great gale of last fall was the barque Tornado. She was laden with a cargo of corn from Chicago to Kingston, and was beached at South Bay, head of Wolfe Island, where she has remained during the winter. On Friday noon last the wrecking tug Page, Capt. Munson, left here for the purpose of getting her off, and last evening the Capt. telegraphed to the Northwestern Insurance Co. announcing his arrival in Kingston with the vessel in tow. Capt. M., with his powerful tug and steam pumps, seldom ever falls in any work of this kind he undertakes.
