      . . . . .

We learn from Col. Edwards, of Put-in-Bay Island, says the Sandusky Register that the brig HOPE, lately stranded on Midle Bass Island and stripped of her rigging and abandoned, has been got off and floated into Put-in-Bay, where is is
now awaiting her rigging in order to proceed to Buffalo. She was easily floated off after relieved of about one half of her cargo of railroad iron, and, being but slightly injured, was soon pumped dry, and will proceed to Buffalo without repairs. It is somewhat singular that the craft should have been abandoned when so slightly disabled; and the officers of the vessel will probably be asked to give an account.
