      The wreckers which went to the relief of the JAVA, sunk at Malden, succeeded on Monday night in getting her sufficiently pumped out to bring her to this port, arriving here yesterday morning. The greater portion of her cargo is yet on board of her in a damaged condition, which will be discharged for further disposition. After going into drydock she will be sufficiently repaired to proceed to Buffalo, where further repairs will be made if required. As is know the JAVA has an iron hull, and heretofore where new plating has been needed the work has been usually carried out at that port.
