      The Steamer KINGSTON. -- Capt. Fortier has been successful in raising this steamer, which met with an unfortunate accident in the Cedar Rapids, a telegram having been received in this city, stating that she was raised on Saturday, and would be in Montreal on Sunday or Monday. She is probably on the dry dock by this time. We have not heard the extent of damage the steamer sustained. She was well insured. - Kingston Whig, 4th.
