I t i s expect- ed that the remainder of the stolen'treas- ure, amounting to $80,000, will be recov- ered inside, of 24 hours.

On her starboard bow there is. a big patch where the bright green paint of her top side has slipped^off as clear as though a sharp scraper had been at work. Otherwise the era ft'seems to be clear.

The stumf. topmast was only capable of. setting a mere rag-of a sail, and the. square sail yard lashed on the port side of the deck had never had a sail-bent to it. - No bow sprit:'and no jigger mast were ther6 to dffer obstacles to the crew. All sailh were set and taken in without difficulty After the steam yacht Erin hos been put id'drydock the Shamrock will be hauled out fPr cleaning. Then nnd not till then will the.shape o f the challenger.be re- vealed to the public eye. |';-.\<. . . • • • i .— r To Save Steamer Halifax. /BOSTON, Aug. 13-The Boston Tow- boat, company has contracted to\ float the Btenm<}r Halifax, which was beached on George's island after striking a ledge off Minios yesterday morning.
