QUICK WORK. - The Coast Wrecking Company have just performed a remarkable feat of wrecking which doubtless is unprecedented. The superintendent of the company with the steam wrecker Rescue and pontoons visited the locality of the schooner Cecelia, which was sunk with a cargo of wheat, as will be remembered, a few days since. She was found at the depth of seven fathoms* of water, and from the commencement of operations was raised and towed into Mc Cormick's Bay in twenty-four hours. Thence she was towed to Detroit with the aid of pontoons and put in the Detroit dry-dock, the whole time occupying but forty-eight hours only. This incident is without a parallel.
