STEAMER BELLE. -- We notice that men are at work on this vessel -- probably raising the machinery. The steamer has careened considerably and appears about to break up. The hull is said to be worthless.

STEAMER BELLE. -- The high water was a benefit to Capt. Locke, enabling him to raise his vessel so that when the water subsided she did not draw more than ordinarily, and is now resting easily, apparently, being sustained by heavy bracing. From present appearances the leakages can be easily stopped, and other repairs made where she is lying, at the foot of the M. S. Dock.
