THE THAYER AND PORTCH.
Milwaukee, Wis., Aug. 8.-- The reports received from Sheboygan tonight stated that a diver had made an examination of the schooner J.O. THAYER, and found that she was in better condition that was at first supposed. Part of her cargo of coal has already been removed.
An attempt was made Monday to raise the schooner E.M. PROTCH, stranded at Sheboygan, by raising her with the screws. The heavy pressure drove the piles around her in the ground, and the attempt had to be given up.
The tug WELCOME , with three scows, leaves for Sheboygan tomorrow. One of the scows has coal for the steam pumps on the schooner E.M.PORTCH.
