RETURNED. The parties who left here with five steam pumps via the Detroit and Milwaukee Railroad, on Tuesday for the relief of the propeller Merchant, returned early yesterday morning. When they arrived at Grand Haven it was found impossible to get the steam pumps on board of the steamer Amazon, and they immediately telegraphed to Racine, stating that it would be necessary to lay over for about ten hours in order to procure a vessel. The answer was received in reply to the telegram to return home with the pumps, as it was impossible for them to render any service to the vessel in her present shape. It is stated that there is a probability of the machinery being taken out and the hull abandoned.
