    LATER FROM THE WRECK OF THE PRINCESS -- Recovery of the Iron Safe – The Late John Hagan. - The steamer Grand Duke, which arrived from Vicksburg last night, brought down the iron safe of the Princess, recovered from the wreck by the diving-bell boat. The safe was opened this morning, and notwithstanding it had been subjected to intense heat, its contents were found to be in excellent preservation. A large amount of money and drafts were found uninjured. In our issues of to-morrow we will give a list of the articles found.

    From the officers of the Grand Duke we learn that the body of John Hagan, who was killed by the explosion of the Princess, had been found near Plaquemine, and was awaiting a coroner’s inquest. The body of the deceased was identified by his beard, and also the gold watch found upon his person. – New Orleans Delta, 21st inst.
