The sandsucker PROTECTION, with Capt. Steibla and a number of men aboard, went to the wreck of the stm. DAN KUNZ Friday. The pumps were at work nearly all day but only succeeded in lowering the water in the sunken vessel 3 inches. The leak was not found, and it is thought, from the quantity of water remaining in the hold after the pumping operations, that it is a large one. What could be seen of the hull, however, was in good condition. Another attempt will be made today to pump out the water.
