A WRECKING SCHOONER. - There arrived at this port on Tuesday, a small ocean built craft, called the RINGOLD, which took her departure from Pawgassett, Massachusetts, on the 7th of June. She has been engaged since her arrival, in searching for and raising sunken wrecks on a somewhat novel plan, which we shall not attempt to describe in this brief article. She carried with her the required material, including diving apparatus. This vessel was the principal in raising the steamer BUCKEYE in the St. Lawrence River. She is commanded by Capt. Falcon, who carries with him an efficient crew, and is now en route for the west, and will call on the way to Mackinac Straits, Green Bay, and other point on Lake Michigan. - Detroit Free Press, 16th.
