Raising of the Frigate Congress.
NEWPORT NEWS, July 21.-Another
determined effort to raise tho wreck of
?he United States frigate Congress
was faade yesterday, and the effort
was partially successful. Five power?
ful steam pumps wer? put in motion
at the beginning of the ebn-tide yes?
terday; this was at 10 a. m. Tho five
*pumps threw out eight thousand, gal?
lons of water per minute, and at 1
o'clock the water in the bulk-head
surrounding the wreck had fallen four
feet. At this time the hull becume
buoyant, and began slowly to rise, the
surrouuding water-tight bulk-head
rising with it. Slowly the great mass
emerged from beneath the surface of
the water, and at 2 o'clock the light of
day once more shone on the deck of
the good old Congress. Several tug:;
wore present, bearing officers and pri?
vileged citizens to witness the novel
experiment. Al] were thinking of that
March, day in 1862. when this ship,
tlie pride, of our then navy, went down
a bloody and helpless wreck.
The wreck, as appearing above thc
waters, gives a fair idea of the origi?
nal size of the ship, though) much ol
the afterpart of thc*, vessel is pone. Or
the wreck are two rusted guns, tc
which oysters and barnacles are-tight,
ly . clinging. The mermaids havt
woven a carpet of algie and spread it
over the deck, the deck that sun!
down crimsoned with blood. Ovei

down into the bold, yet deep in' tin
water: oysters we saw in abundance
and chains, and great bolts of copper
The teredo has bored into the t imbers
and the ribs of oak are honey-combe?
and unstable. Save the groat amouu
of metal in and about thc wreck, tin
.remains of the Congress are useless
! There are vague rumors as toa pay
master's safe, with twenty thousam
dollars in specie, being somewhor
about thc wreck. This is a rumo
only, but the rlivers will take a shari
look to discover, if possible. UTlVtllill!
