The J. P. Hale - A steam tug and lighters have been employed since yesterday morning in securing the cargo, rigging, sails, spars, &c. , of the J. P. Hale, ashore on Ford's Shoals. About 1,100 bushels have been saved in good condition, and it is said that about 5,000 bushels will be lost. The vessel will probably be a total wreck.

The Sultan. - This vessel, which went ashore below the east pier, will probably be got off without material damage. A steam pump is at work on her, and her cargo is being discharged into canal boats, about 1,700 bushels of which is in good condition.
