It is reported from Detroit that no effort will be made to raise the steamer JOHN B. LYON, which was foundered a week ago in lake Erie. She lies in about 60 feet of water, five miles offshore, midway between Ashtabula and Conneaut. From the accounts of the disaster, it appears that the vessel is so badly wrecked that it will not pay to raise her.
The schooner DUNDEE, which also went down in the big gale last week, will be raised and repaired. The DUNDEE is owned by Mr. Gerlach of Cleveland, and as she only came out seven years ago, it is figured to be too good a boat to leave at the bottom of the lake. It is said that she may be abandoned to the insurance companies as a constructive total loss, or else the insurance will be claimed, and Capt. Gerlach will raise her.

The government survey steamer VISITOR on Friday proceeded up to the spot where the barge DUNDEE lies sunk off Cleveland. The engineers noted the condition and her location and estimated the cost of removing her. As a result of the investigation, the government authorities will issue notices to the owners that the wreck must be removed or they will take steps to do that work themselves.
