This morning John Donnelly sighted the steamer McCormack, owned by Capt. Gus Hinckley, of Oswego, N.Y., a few miles outside Nine Mile Point. He saw the smoke of a vessel and secured his glasses and found the boat to be the McCormack, which had evidently run across the lake to see what the ice conditions were over this way. The McCormack is to do work at the steamer Sharples, which went ashore on the Galoup Islands, off Sackett's Harbor, late last fall, and which could not be floated at the time owing to adverse weather conditions.
