Barb Wire Salvaged From Sunken Barge.
Ogdensburg, Sept. 20th - The steamer City of New York was in port yesterday bound for Montreal with a cargo of 425 tons of baled wire salvaged by the Donnelly Wrecking Company, of Kingston, from the barge Atlasco sunk in fifty feet of water off South Bay Point, Lake Ontario, about a month ago.
The Donnelly company expects to have the balance of the cargo salvaged by the end of this week. The company has been badly handicapped by bad weather.
The steamer City of New York is the last surviving member of the old N.T. Company. She was built in 1863 and for many years plied the waters between Ogdensburg and Chicago in passenger and freight trade.
The steamer is full size of the Original Welland Canal, namely 135 feet in length, 28 feet beam and nine feet deep.
