The propeller Michigan, Capt. Hopkins, of the Northern Transportation Co., arrived this morning from Ogdensburgh, with a cargo of iron and salt. The Michigan is probably the last propeller of the season from the lower ports, an honor which she enjoyed last season as well. She left Ogdensburgh on the 28th ult., passed Detroit on the 4th inst., and came through the Straits last Saturday. She reports considerable ice in the Straits, and had to break her way in some places. [Chicago Press, 5th]

The tug Reindeer, Capt. S.C. Ceeler, arrived yesterday morning from Detroit to tow thither the brig Andes and schooner Alnwick, coal laden. On her way she found the schooner Fortune, laden with coal for Detroit, beset by ice in Pigeon Bay, and towed her into port where she will lay for the winter. Capt. Keeler reports ice as far east as Point au Pelee. The Reindeer expected to leave last night with her tow.

The Capt. of the Fortune reports seeing a black fore-and-after on Saturday, and also a vessel with spars gone, and as it appeared to him, between East Sister and Hen and Chickens; but he probably saw the wreck of the Bay City. [Cleveland Review]

The Detroit and Milwaukee Co's steamer Milwaukee has been ashore near the mouth of the river since the 29th ult., experiencing in the meantime several storms. She was got off and steamed to her dock on Saturday, apparently but little injured in hull or machinery.
