Washington, 14th August.-- The first shipment of a portion of the cut of the statute of Liberty, which is to be erected on Bedloe's Island as a lighthouse, was re- ceived from France by the steamer Labra- dor, of the Havre line, yesterday. There are eight sections packed in as many boxes in the consignment. Only two boxes have been landed-- one containing the right hand and wrist, and the other a portion of the torch. The casting is of dark bronze and hollow bronze between a sixteenth and an eighteenth of an inch thick, and braced throughout with wrought iron stays. Centre rods run through them. The casting is about fourteen feet by nine. This section required twenty-nine men to handle it, but was lifted ordinary der- ricks from the hold of the vessel and lowered to the wharf on skids. This con- signment embraces the right arm, hand and wrist.
