The Schooner Ballard. - Our readers will recollect the circumstances connected with the loss of that unfortunate vessel, the M. Ballard, which was wrecked off the Galloo Islands some weeks ago, going down under with her captain and crew of ten men.

The Detroit Post says, Capt. Hugh Coyne has returned; his efforts to recover the body of his brother who was lost by the wreck of the schooner Ballard on Galloo island, having been entirely fruitless. No traces of any of the bodies, except the three which were found the next morning after the gale, could be discovered, and the season is now so late that it is impossible to make further search. The names of the crew, as well as their residence, is unknown. Capt. Coyne was a young man, and attended school in Detroit last winter. His untimely death is lamented by a large circle of friends.
