Can you tell me more about the relay? What is the current rating or what is the resistance of the coil?

The 3055 is a 10A transistor and it does not have much gain. The min is 20. If the relay is really that much of a load, you might have to drive the 2n139 diode REALLY hard to get the 3055 to saturate.

I wouldn't even try to drive a 1 amp relay with these components.
