-The Magnet - The barge Fortitude was fitted out here yesterday by Mr. Fortier, who we stated had undertaken to raise the sunken propeller Magnet from her resting place in the bottom of the St. Lawrence. He assumes the arduous task for $7000, one-seventh less than Messrs. Calvin and Breck asked, and $3000 less than the Boston Company demanded. Mr. Fortier, from his experience in wrecking, no doubt will be successful in raising the Magnet. Yesterday the proper machinery arrived from Montreal, as well as the divers, and the barge has been towed to the wreck to begin operations today.

p.3 Case of Drowning - a hand fell off barge Montreal near Cedar Island.
