Another Attempt To Raise Barge Davy

Messrs. Hinckley and Sampson Agree to Raise Wreck Before Close of Navigation

A despatch from Oswego has the following: "Capt. A.R. Hinckley, of this city, has just taken a difficult wrecking contract in the St. Lawrence River. He, in partnership with Capt. Sampson, has agreed to raise the sunken barge Davy (sic - Davie), which lies in the narrows near Central Park. This barge was loaded with wheat when she went down last spring, but the hatches came off and most of the cargo has spilled out. The stern of the wreck lies on a ledge of rock but the bow is in sixty-five feet of water. Messrs. Hinckley and Sampson agree to raise the wreck before the close of navigation and if they are successful will receive $7,000 for their work."
