p.2 Mr. Quigley, the well-known submarine explorer, leaves this city on Monday for Kingston, C.W., preparatory to raising the bark R.H. Rae, capsized and sunk near the islands familiarly known as 'the ducks,' thirty miles this side of Kingston. The Rae is a very handsome craft belonging to Rae and Brothers, Hamilton, and was entirely new when she went down, it being her first or second trip. She lies in 95 feet water, and with a less accomplished operator than Mr. Quigley, the success of the attempt would be very problematical; we do not doubt, however, that he will meet with success. He is provided with air pumps, diving apparatus, jack-saws, etc. [Detroit Tribune]
