AT CHICAGO. - The wrecking tug Rescue has arrived with the traps of the stranded propeller Merchant, which has been stripped and abandoned till next spring. Her upper works and cabins are not gone, as has been reported, nor have they ever started. The hull of the steamer is in a bad way, and, as one of the Rescue's men remarked this morning, "Her whole bottom is out." O. B. Green, of this city, is anxious to obtain the contract for raising her and bringing her to this port.
