This morning the Donnelly Wrecking company succeeded in raising the steamer Nevada, sunk at Farran's Point, down the St. Lawrence, three weeks ago. The vessel will be brought to Kingston and docked for repairs as soon as the divers complete the patching of her bottom, which is leaking badly. The grain will be taken out and brought to Richardson's elevator.

The raising of the Nevada was one of the most difficult wrecking undertakings on the St. Lawrence, the spot at which the vessel sunk being in the line of a swift current. To prevent the Nevada from being carried on the beach during the process of raising, a barge had to be sunk on Monday, between the shore and the vessel.
