Loss of the Merry Calvin.--The schr. Merry Calvin left Detroit about three weeks since for Monroe. She arrived at the mouth of the Detroit River, and was there detained about two weeks, by contrary winds. On Thursday morning of last week, in attempting to make for the Port of Monroe, she was driven on the Canada shore, at Bat Point, 5 miles below Amherstburg. Her loading was here taken out, the vessel got off, and her cargo reshipped. Capt. Choate then attempted to tow her up into the mouth of the River, on the Canada side--but on Sunday night she ran foul of a rock, from which she was got off on Monday morning. She then hoisted sail, with a brisk south wind, for the purpose of making the mouth of the River Huron; but in this attempt she was unsuccessful--and was at length got ashore at Brownstown, where she now lies, sunk, with two feet water in her hold. Her cargo was all got ashore uninjured--and will shortly reach the individuals for whom it is destined at this place.--Monroe Sentinel.
