DEATH OF A SUBMARINE DIVER. - Mr. Wm. Wright, a submarine diver of more than usual skill in that profession, died a day or two since after a very brief illness. For the past nine years, Mr. W has been associated with Capt. Falcon in wrecking on Lake Michigan, and quite recently engaged in the recovery of the machinery lost in the propeller Milwaukee, of which mention has already been made, and it was while in search of the cargo of the Tiffany that he was attacked with paralysis, afterward taken to Mackinaw, where he died within three days. He resided in Chicago, was about thirty-four years of age, and leaves a family to mourn his sudden demise.
