The Com. Perry.--This little schooner left here for Mackinac about the 20th of Sept. last, under the command of capt. W. Keith. From Mackinac she sailed for Green bay, where she remained some time, after which she left for Menominee River for a cargo of fish. About the middle of the Bay, she sprung a leak, and several inches of water were found on the cabin floor, before the captain or crew had any intimation of it. The pump was found perfectly useless, and capt. keith ran her into the mouth of Fox River, having succeeded by great exertion, in keeping her above water. The Com. Perry was supposed, in this place, to have been lost, until the arrival of Capt. K. on Monday last, having performed the journey from Green Bay, by land, in thirty days.
