THE "BRIDGEWATER." - The old schooner BRIDGEWATER, which for over a year has been lying on the bank near Fort Wayne, is being fitted out to be taken to Buffalo, and probably then be rebuilt. Men were put to work on her yesterday morning, and commenced pumping the water out of her immediately. Whatever holes may be found in her bottom will be covered over with canvas, so as to make her as tight as possible for the trip. Capt. Dave Hoose is in charge of the boat.
