GOT OFF. - Capt. Donnelly, with the steamer HIRAM A. CALVIN, of Garden Island, has succeeded in getting the schooner AMERICAN off the shore at Pillar Point, and towed her into Chaumont Bay. It was most difficult work, the vessel having run up into three feet of water, and having her anchor quite under her. It was a skillful job to get her off. - Kingston Whig.
