-Wrecking Operations - the Magnet, Whitehall and Resolution Raised
The propeller Magnet having been raised where she had sunk in the Lachine Canal, arrived here yesterday under steam and proceeded to the Marine Railway. Her hull has been sold to Messrs. Power & Co. for $500 and will be converted into a barge. A new hull will be built here for the Magnet and her machinery transferred to it this winter. The Magnet has seen long service.
The steamer Whitehall, which was sunk in May, at Newboro on the Rideau Canal, has been raised, as a result of the last determined effort of Mr. Donnelly, with the steamer Berthier and Messrs. Calvin & Breck's pumps. She arrived here yesterday, and is awaiting a place on the ways of the Marine Railway. The Whitehall is much damaged and may require to be rebuilt.
The barge Resolution, which on Saturday sank in the Morrisburg Canal, has been raised with the aid of Mr. Brokenshire's pumps and is on the way to Kingston. Her cargo of salt is a total loss, having dissolved in the water. She was very easily relieved of her cargo.
