p.3 The Steamer Dawn - An attempt was made yesterday morning to bring this vessel into port. Preparations had been made with barges and boxes to float her, and Messrs. Colcleugh & Greer allowed the steamer Fashion to go up to the Rapids for the purpose of drawing her off the shoal; in which, however, she did not succeed, something having given way. The Dawn was nevertheless raised a few feet and floated, but she drifted lower down upon the shoal, and could not be taken off with the means then at command. It is intended to raise her again with additional barges, when another, and we trust successful attempt will be made to get her into harbor. She now lies in about six feet water - and there is every prospect of her being got off, anad we expect yet to see her in the Port of Montreal, as trim as ever. [Montreal Courier July 14th]
