--The noble James
is quietly but rapidly subsiding.
Yesterday very many well known landmarks, covered on Saturday with water, made their appearance, and several adventurous steamboats that had ventured up towards Maye

The gunboat Teazer
and other named craft still maintain their position in the dock.
The water must have fail en fully fifteen feet. The flood did not hurt the lover obstructions.
