Loss of the U.S. Steamer JEFFERSON. - An arrival at new York from Rio De Janiero reports that the U.S. surveying steamer Jefferfson was lost in July last at the mouth of the Straits. A portion of the machinery would be saved but the vessel will prove a total loss.
A schooner had been chartered at Montevideo, which has proceeded to the wreck to bring up the officers and crew. The Jefferson was an iron steamer built for the Government at Oswego during the Administration of Capt. Tyler. After serving at this port for some time as a Revenue cutter, she was taken down the St. Lawrence with another steamer of the same class under charge of Capt. Frazier, and went round to the Pacific.
