She came to anchor at 1 o'clock Sunday morning, in the Bay, a mile above the light-house. She dragged her anchor and came ashore at 4 o'clock A.M. The captain and crew got ashore.

THE BRIG FANNY GARDNER. -- This vessel, which went ashore about one mile above the toll bridge, in the terrible storm of last November, is now being got off by Mr. Campbell, the same contractor who removed the schooner COMET from the beach, a short distance above. The GARDNER has already been raised to the level of the ways, and as soon as the latter shall be sufficiently extended, she will be taken out upon the ice, and left at anchor, ready to break into her element immediately on " breaking up." She seems to have suffered but little strain, and is a staunch as a new yacht. Mr. Campbell is paid $1,000 for getting her afloat.
