HARBOR BEACH, December 10.--With the lake raised to a higher level by the strong northwest wind, the tugs Sarnia City and James Reid today dragged the steamer Edward Buckley off the shore inside the harbor of refuge, where she had been lying since the great storm of November 9.

A five-inch syphon working part of the time keeps the water down, and the Buckley probably will be taken to Port Huron to go into drydock.

Divers are patching a leak in the bow of the steamer Rhoda Emily, which is on the bottom in the channel dug to release her by the Lakeside Dredging Company's dredge No. 1. She will be floated easily with a steam pump.

The barge Dorcas Pendall is still out on the shore with thirty inches of water in her. Wreckers will try to get her off if weather conditions continue favorable.
