AT LAST. - Steps have at length been taken to raise the old steamer formerly used by the yacht club and which sunk during one of the storms last winter. Capt. Parkinson , of the Bouquet, has taken the job fair in hand and has bulkheaded the interior of the vessel, previous to setting the steam pumps to work. It is expected that she will be raised by the middle of next week, when she will be towed over to the wharf and stripped of her copper. Should her hull be sufficiently sound, it is probable she will be converted into a three-mast schooner for the lumber trade. [Toronto Globe.
