The Parkersburg did not get into
the river, as was expected in our last
issue, but the effort wns continued un
til they swung her around with her
bow toward the river, and the heavy
seas threw her high upon the beach
alongside of Ilackleff rock, where she
still lies. On last. Tuesday the work
of unlading the vessel commenced and
was successfully completed on the
following Thursday, having worked
during the ebb tide of throe days
and ono night. The freight was in
good condition considering the cir
cumstances. Captain Parker estimates
the damage to freight nt $50, while
ho thinks 8100 will cover the damage
of the vessel. She will be raised and
