EXTENSIVE WRECKING PREPARATIONS. - The difficulties surrounding the efforts for rescuing the iron propeller Merchant having assumed such proportions, it has been determined to take hold of the work in a manner that will insure success. As has been already noticed, four steam pumps of the largest calibre are already there, and two or more pontoons arrived at the scene of operations. Yesterday the above arrangements were added to by forwarding two more pontoons with additional wrecking apparatus, on board the coast wrecking vessel Hercules, which left here during the latter part of the day in tow of the Magnet.
