The sloop-of-war Germantown. --This ship, which was devoted to destruction in the memorable attempt to destroy the Gosport Navy-Yard, has been raised and is now undergoing such repairs as will in a few weeks accomplish her thorough renovation. The contract for raising the G. was undertaken by those skillful artisans, the Messrs. Baker, who expeditiously and faithfully executed it Lincoln's destructives not only set fire to the G., but scuttled her; and in addition to this the large, tall shears fell across her. But in the hands of skillful workmen she has not only been put afloat again, but will soon be fit for service, we trust, in the Confederate Navy. --Norfolk Herald.
