p.2 Imports - 26.

p.3 The Grecian - The government steamer H. Calvin arrived at Garden Island last evening from the wreck of the Grecian. She reports that most of the cargo and baggage had been recovered, while John Donelly, with the divers, had been left to recover the remainder. It is yet uncertain whether an attempt will be made to raise the vessel or not. The opinion of Mr. Jerritt, of New York, a well known wrecker, after making an examination of the wreck at the instance of the American insurance companies, is that the cost of raising the vessel would be more than the worth of the salvage.
