p.2 The propeller Brooks, which was lost last autumn outside the "Ducks." with all hands on board, and which a party of divers were endeavoring to raise from her watery bed, was towed down to Garden Island, opposite this city, in a submerged state, by one of Calvin & Breck's tug steamers, on Sunday morning about three o'clock, where she now lies sunk in 25 feet water. The divers succeeded in raising a few barrels of flour from the hull, which were in a good state of preservation; but it being found impossible with the imperfect appliances at hand to bring the vessel to the surface, Messrs. Calvin & Breck were applied to to take her to the Island, where the necessary machinery will be immediately employed in floating her.
