The Donnelly Wrecking company, of Kingston, succeeded at noon on Thursday in releasing the steamer Keystorm of Montreal, which ran ashore at the entrance to Cardinal canal last Sunday night. The Keystorm was enroute from Astabula to Montreal, with coal, and lost its bearings for a few moments when smoke obscured the entrance at the turn. The Donnelly company's wrecking steamer and barge reached the scene of the accident on Monday night, and the next two days were spent in lightering 700 tons of coal. When this was done, the Keystorm responded to pulling by the Donnelly. The steamer was out six feet forward in blue clay, and was practically undamaged. It proceeded to Montreal. The lightered coal will be sent down after her. The steamer Donnelly arrived back early this morning. John Donnelly, who was in charge of the work, arrived back here, on Thursday afternoon.
