The Kingston - The two steam pumps, to be used in raising the steamer Kingston, sunk at the foot of the Beauharnois Canal, reached here on Friday night from Oswego in the tug Tornado, and were forwarded in the Graecian the following morning. The pumps of Calvin & Breck, who have been engaged by the Insurance Companies to raise her, are at the Kingston, as well as the steamer Pierrepont, which has been engaged in carrying the freight from the steamer to Lachine. Hopes are entertained of raising her in a few days. In the meantime the work on the shafts of the Passport is being pushed ahead lively. The one sent to Portland for repairs arrived here yesterday.
