The steamlaunch Cruiser will start tomorrow for Collingwood. Capt. Holmes is a little superstitious. He don't want to begin a new life on Friday.

The item published in the Whig of yesterday, taken from the Empire, and referring to the yacht Verve, is ridiculously untrue. So the crew of the Verve assert. They did not send any bottle with writing in it afloat; they had something else to do.

The tug Carrington and pontoons are working on the steamer California sunk in 10 fathoms of water near St. Helena, and it is claimed they are all under, ready to raise when the weather is favorable. They think she will come up easily. The steamer's upper works are all gone, but the hull is intact and in perfect shape.

Yesterday afternoon the tugs Hiram Dickenson and Hunter reached Gunn's wharf from Ogdensburg. Their masters claimed that the trip from the port mentioned was made in five hours and a half. This time is very fast and many people are inclined to dispute it. The boats were built in Portland, Maine, and are going to Duluth and Chicago.
