THE MERCHANT. - The wrecking tug rescue returned to Chicago yesterday morning, it having been found impossible to make any impression on the wrecked propeller Merchant with steam pumps. The only hope now is in pontoons, and it is doubtful if she can be rescued even with these. Her injuries are very severe, and it is pretty safe to say that she has ended her career. The captain of the schooner Dan Lyons passed within sight of the wreck yesterday, and reports no change in her appearance or position, Three men were seen on board. - Inter-Ocean, 16th
