THE STEAMER NIAGARA. - This vessel that went ashore early this spring near the mouth of the Genesee River on Lake Ontario, after laying seven weeks has at last been raised. The American says: "She was taken into the harbor between the piers; but in the course of the night her pumps became foul, and leaking badly, she went down in 16 feet of water. The Niagara was to have a canvass [sic] jacket put under her and to be taken immediately to Oswego for repairs. Steps have already been taken to raise her, which will be accomplished, it is thought, in a few days.
