-The Propeller Magnet - The raised propeller Magnet which was towed into Garden Island on Saturday morning, still remains there discharging a portion of her cargo, being lashed to the side of one of Messr. Calvin & Breck's tugs, and pumped out to prevent her sinking. Captain Fortier has been very successful in raising her. The portion of her cargo which had not been insured, consisting of a large quantity of wool, cloth, sewing machines, etc., have been brought to the St. Lawrence wharf to be taxed for the proportion of the expenses of raising the boat and cargo. The insured portion of the cargo is to be sold tomorrow at Portsmouth, where the Magnet will be towed today. This would have been done yesterday but for the gale. At Portsmouth the Magnet will be hauled out at Captain Fortier's expenses and repaired.
