La Plaisance Bay.--The Michigan Sentinel of the 24th ult. mentions the arrival of the schooner Erie, capt. Merrit, in the harbor of La Plaisance Bay. Capt. M. although unacquainted with the channel, sailed into the Bay without difficulty.--It is but recently that it was discovered that a good harbor could be found near the mouth of the river Raisin. The discovery of the fact is an important event for the interests of the southern part of the Territory--it will more than double the value of real estate bordering upon and in the vicinity of the Raisin.
