Gathered in the Local Harbor. On Tuesday, a message was received by the Leathem & Smith company asking that a tug be sent to Nahma, Mich., to release the towbarge S. J. Tilden, which was frozen in at that port. This craft is a consort of the steamer L. L. Barth, and on December 3rd was left at Nahma to load lumber while she proceeded to Manistique for a cargo. When the steamer returned for her consort on Friday last it was found that Big Bay de Noquette was frozen over from the head to the mouth, and the Barth could only get as far as Fayette, which is nine miles from Nahma. The tug Tomlinson of Escanaba was sent for but could not go, so word was sent to this port for a tug. The Leathem will have no difficulty in breaking a channel to the imprisoned barge, the ice being only about four inches thick.
