Work has been going on slowly at the raising of the barge Gaskin. Everything is so far forward, however, that they hope to raise the barge this week. Most of the cargo has been taken out and the barge is now very light, and were it not for the chains by which it is attached to the Armstrong, it would probably move with the current down the river. There are some iron drums in the hold, as well as some petroleum barrels, and these will aid in lifting the barge so that one pontoon will be amply sufficient. Two divers are at work on the wreck.
