Bay City. June 17.-- The propeller ELMIRA was sold here today at United States Marshal sale. She was bid in at $625 by T.C. Waters [her former owner] for E.B. Knight. She was seized and sold to satisfy a claim for the loss of the barge GEORGIE KELLEY last fall.

      FLOATED DOWN THE RIVER.
Within a day or two past the wreck of the old schooner GEORGIA KELLEY, which has been lying half submerged in the mud and water near Jones' dry dock, has been moved by the water and ice down the river, where she has sunk, but so far in shore as to be out of the track of passing vessels. Last season the Post & Tribune suggested that this and other old hulks that are out of commission, and utterly beyond repair, be either burned up or torn to pieces. The suggestion is renewed.
