Singular Preservation of property at New York.

--On Thursday afternoon, during the confusion attending the departure of the steamship Blenville, a trunk containing $600 worth of jewelry slipped from the shoulder of the porter, and striking the wheel-house was broken open and the contents scattered in the river. Two officers of the steamboat squad, at the risk of their lives, descended to the surface of the water and succeeded in recovering nearly all of the property. The jewelry, being attached to cards, floated about until picked up.
