p.2 The Steamer Inkerman - pumped out.

-We learn that a company of American divers are at work at the hull of the proprellor Brookes, which foundered in one of the gales of last fall, on Lake Ontario, near the Ducks. They found the wreck without difficulty, in 86 feet of water, and have fished up some barrels of pork and flour, the latter of which was in an excellent state of preservation, the water not having penetrated more than 2 inches. It is intended to secure the hull and float it into shallower water to facilitate the operation of securing the cargo, which is a valuable one, and also the vessel, the decks of which are reported to be perfectly sound. The company also, we learn, intend afterwards operating on the Ocean Wave, if her whereabouts can be ascertained. [News]
