THE PROPELLER MERCHANT. - The most important parts of the engine of the Merchant have been recovered, viz.; the cylinder, engine frame, bedplate, pillow blocks, crank, eccentrics, shaft, brasses, keys, nuts, etc. The boiler can also be recovered, as well as every part of the iron hull that remains on the reef. It is only a question of time and money. If the iron can be made merchantable it will be got up, and if not it will remain where it is. The lifting is gone with screws and a steam hoisting apparatus. It took only three working days to recover the engine.
