p.2 Removing a Harbor Obstruction - The old sunken pier opposite the railway wharf is being successfully raised by the railroad authorities. With half a dozen men, and the assistance of a powerful "crab," they have succeeded in raising a large portion of the obstruction within the past few days, and bid fair in a short time to remove it altogether. A large anchor and chain valued at about $150 lies upon the pier, which will also be got up. This is the pier on which one of the steamers of the American line grounded last summer, and where she remained a couple of hours. Several other steamers have been upon the pier from time to time, and its entire or even partial removal, sufficient to prevent a recurrence of these accidents, will be a source of great satisfaction to many.
