It is stated that the steamer Arundell will not be able to leave the government dry dock until Thursday at least. There is considerable work to be done to the vessel, and it is being rushed along. The steamer is losing practically a whole month's work, as a result of the accident, and one of the best months at that. Today, July 4th, the steamer would have been very busy with excursions down the river, and all the month would have been very busy. The Arundell ran aground on June 18th, and was released on the 29th of the month.
