This morning, the Donnelly wrecking boats went up to the schooner Annandale on Charity Shoal to get what coal it is possible to release. For the owner of the vessel, W. Kerr, the steambarge John Randall and Capt. Beaupre went up to strip the boat. It is doubtful if the Annandale can be pulled off, though a trial may be made.

p.6 His Tender Accepted - B.W. Folger has purchased the hulk and contents of the propellor Melbourne, which was burned and sunk in the canal near Trenton, about three weeks ago. Tenders were called for it by the underwriters at Cleveland, and Mr. Folger's tender of $1,001 was the highest. This morning he received word of its acceptance. The hulk of the Melbourne is of no value, but the machinery is worth four or five thousand dollars. There is also a quantity of furniture and other freight which will bring something. The Donnelly Wrecking company will be engaged to raise the sunken vessel.

Pith of the News - The revenue cutter Morell, with United States Collector of Customs, Charles Leech, of this district, on board, confiscated an American fishing tug found at work in Canadian waters on Lake Erie.
