San Francisco History

Ship Elizabeth Moved

MOVED.—It will be recollected that the ship Elizabeth has been, for a long time, used as a store ship between Pacific street and Broadway, near Battery, where she has been deeply imbedded in mud. The herculean task of removing her into deep water has been undertaken and is likely to succeed. [She] has already been dragged from her position through the mud to Front street, and we understand that the piles, &c, are to be removed early this week to let her through the harbor.
