Milwaukee Sentinel: -- A letter was received from Captain Kirklind, of the LEVIATHAN, on Friday, stating that he would leave the schooner TAYLOR and attempt to release the NABOB, but if the water about the latter is still too cold for workmen to remain in it, he will go to the TWO FRIENDS and tow her here. The job of releasing the NABOB will be a long and tedious one, as she will heve to be screwed up and placed on ways. Captain Kirkland's letter also says that the NABOB can easily be released with warm weather.
