A RELIC OF OLD TIMES. - This forenoon the dredge Samson, Captain John Parsons, raised from the bottom of the river, a little north of Cayuga street, a relic of old wars. It was an old fashioned sword bayonet, with plain brass hilt, and the blade of more than ordinary length. It was very much corroded by rust but still there remained a fair thickness of sound metal. It has probably reposed on the river bottom since 1812, and possibly longer. Capt. Parsons will preserve it in his cabinet of antiquities.
