The Kingston - The efforts hitherto, to raise this steamer, sunk at the foot of the Beauharnois Canal, by steam-pumps, have been unsuccessful, and a new attempt will be made to raise her. It is proposed to sink two barges, one on each side of the steamer and by laying pieces of timber across their decks support the steamer, and then by pumping out the barges, raise them and at the same time the steamer. We hope that the steamer may soon be raised, and resume her trips.
