The grain was all removed from the schr. EDWARD KELLEY this morning. As soon as the water rises again she will be pulled off. Negotiations are pending for the release of the barges MOHAWK and KEYSTONE. The latter was being blocked this morning to prevent her becoming further "hogged."

Capt. Samuel Gibson who took the contract to relase the barges MOHAWK and KEYSTONE, ashore near the lighthouse, succeded in pulling off the former yesterday afternoon with the assistance of the tugs MAYTHAM and CROWELL. As indicated yesterday the MOHAWK appears to be no worse for the accident and there will be no necessity for placing her in drydock.
