SCHOONER ST. HELENA. -- By letters received in this city some few days since, the Express learns of the arrival of this vessel at Queenstown, Ireland, from Detroit on the 14th. of July, in twenty days from Lark Harbor, Bay of Islands, Newfoundland, where she had put in to repair damages, caused by carrying away the head-gear of her mainmast in a squall, on the second day out from Quebec. She made the passage out with a reefed mainsail; and no light sails set on her mainmast. Capt. Hall was to leave Queenstown for Liverpool, to discharge, July 19, and would possibly leave there for the return voyage to the lakes.

SCHOONER St. HELENA. -- By a letter in town yesterday, from Capt. Hall, dated Adrossin, Scotland, August 23d. we learn that this vessel, laden with 350 tons of pig iron for Detroit, sprung a leak after getting clear of the land on her return trip. It was with difficulty that she was navigated back to port, where she was discharged and put in dry dock. She is to be caulked and refastened. The repairs will probably take three weeks, when she will re-load and start again.
