Atkins & Beckwith yesterday sent the tug AMERICAN EAGLE, with a steam pump, to the schooner JOHN BEAN, Jr., which is full of water at Pike's Pier, on the east shore. She was loading at the pier when the storm came up, and had about 100 cords of wood on board, in the hold. Captain. David Dall, the owner of the BEAN, also left last evening on the schooner LINCOLN DALL, to bring over the cargo. The condition of the BEAN is not fully known as yet, but it is thought that she can be pumped out and rescued.
