The steamer Columbia which ran ashore at Ten-Acre shoal on Tuesday, was released by the Donnelly Wrecking company, and the vessel suffered no damage. She will discharge the balance of the cargo she has on board, and will then clear for the west. The Columbia is owned by Richard Williamson, of Niagara Falls. As stated yesterday, the work had to be suspended owing to the high sea. Early in the evening the steamer Donnelly went out to the scene again, and succeeded in getting the vessel off. The Donnelly Wrecking company did some fine work.
