THE ALBATROSS. - The tug Winslow, which has been at work for some time past trying to effect the release of the schooner Albatross, ashore on Middle Island [Lake Huron - ds], returned yesterday afternoon for another steam pump, the two now on the schooner having proved inadequate. Capt. Swain reports the schooner is lying on a rocky ledge, with five feet of water forward and seven feet aft. Her bottom, he says, has been badly punctured by the rocks. The work of releasing her has been retarded by adverse winds.
