Montreal, Aug. 16. -- The steamer ALGERIAN has been safely got off the Split Rock and is now lying in Cantin's dock. The loss will not exceed $1,000, and it is expected she will again be on her route in a couple of days. No blame is laid by the company upon Captain Trowell, who is considered a most efficient officer.
