The steamer Saturn was, up to noon today, still on the Charity shoals at the entrance to the American channel. Last evening the tug Rival and lighter Neelon returned to Collins Bay with the Saturn's deck load of timber. Work would have been continued but rough weather drove them away. It was hoped to have the steamer released by night fall. She is resting easy. Work of rescuing the stranded boat was resumed at daybreak this morning.
