Steamer Marshall Was Ashore at Main Ducks.

The Donnelly Wrecking company succeeded yesterday in releasing the steamer Marshall, which had run ashore at the Main Ducks on Sunday. The vessel was on two feet forward and one foot aft. About 150 tons of her cargo of 1,100 tons were removed to the lighterer Grantham. Then the steamer Donnelly was able to pull her off, and towed her to the foot of Wolfe Island, whence the Marshall proceeded to Brockville, under her own steam. She was leaking but little. When her cargo is discharged she will come to the Kingston dry dock for repairs. The Marshall is owned by the Central Canada Coal company, of Brockville.
