The tug H.G. NOLTON, which went to the assistance of the schr. ST. ANDREWS, sunk in the Welland Canal, returned yesterday afternoon, and reports that the vessel will prove a total loss. Her deck is burst and sprung in some places 2 ft., and her sides are spread out considerably. The cargo is all wet, but will not prove a total loss, as it will be lightered out and sold. The steam pump taken there by the NOLTON was left, and will probably be used in pumping out the grain. The hull is insured for $7,225.

      The recent report that the schr. ST. ANDREWS, sunk in the Welland Canal below Port Colborne, would prove a total loss, seems not to have been well founded. The vessel was raised Saturday and towed to Port Robinson to be docked. It is estimated that her damages will not much exceed $1,000. Several loads of wet grain were taken from her, and a small portion still remains.

Tug NOLTON returned to Buffalo on Tuesday afternoon from the sehooner ST. ANDREWS, sunk in the Welland Canal, and reports the schooner a total wreck. Her decks have come off and her sides spread out. It is thought the cargo can be sayed yet, wet, and negotations were being made last evening to get lighters there for that purpose. The steam pump was left there, and Captain Rice also remained.
