The tug G.W. GARDNER, which went to Cleveland on Wednesday last, for the purpose of pulling off the schr. SARDINIA, ashore about a mile and a half above Madison dock, returned on Saturday. Capt. Hand states that he might have easily got the SARDINIA afloat, but as she was in a very leaky condition he was afraid to do so, and returned here for the purpose of obtaining one of Capt. Dorr's largest pumps, with which he proposes to keep her afloat. He again "sailed" for the unfortunate craft yesterday, at 2:00.
Capt. Hand got the schr. E. HALL off on Friday, and took her to Cleveland.
