The steamer Aletha, which went ashore two weeks ago in Navy Bay, after drifting helpless before a high wind with her steam all gone, through the main pipe bursting, came down the bay today and will resume her regular run from here to Picton. When she was released by the Donnelly Wrecking company a week ago Saturday she was towed to Picton, where she underwent a thorough overhauling on Hepburn's ways there and it was found that owing to the toughness of her bottom there was very little damage done to her. A week was sufficient to get her in shape again.
