THE PROPELLER BUFFALO.--The propeller Buffalo, of which we have had occasion to notice during the past week as being aground at the head of Fighting Island in the river below, has been finally liberated.The services of steam tugs proving of little or no avail the marine boxes of the Messrs. Ives' were finally brought into requisition, which, after being placed in their proper position, compelled her to raise right up bodily from the clay where she was imbedded and slide off into deep water. The above means for raising such large hulks from such places are probably unsurpassed. The Buffalo arrived up to the city during yesterday afternoon, and after taking on the salt which she had lightened proceeded on to Chicago. The expense from first to last of getting her off was not far from $100.
