ALL BUT TWO OF FLEET RECALLED -- NAVY DEPARTMENT CONFIDENT THAT TUG AND CREW ARE LOST.

Boston, Feb. 16. -- The search for the missing naval tug Nina has been abandoned from Cape May to this port.

"Discontinue searching for Nina and return to Boston at one."
It was admitted at the navy yard that the search so far as this port of the coast is concerned has been abandoned temporarily, if not altogether. The collier Caesar in command of Muster L. E. Easton and the Castine in command of Lieut. R. A. Koch, are not on their was to this port.
