      The wreck of the ATLAS was visited last week by the stm. GREAT WESTERN, Capt. Goldsmith; a portion of her cargo was taken to Buffalo. Nothing can be done with the vessel. About 2 ft. of water was pumped out, but they could not sink it lower. If the late gales have not disturbed the wreck, a portion of the cargo may be saved in a damaged state.
