The divers succeeded in raising a few barrels of flour from the hull, which were in a good state of preservation; but it being found impossible with the imperfect appliances at hand to bring the vessel to the surface Messrs. Calvin & Breck were applied to to take her to the Island, where the necessary machinery will be immediately employed in floating her.
