      THE PLYMOUTH. - The propeller PLYMOUTH which sustained damage in the Straits on Sunday while working her way through the ice which caused her to spring a leak and thereby throw overboard a portion of her cargo, arrived at this port yesterday noon. The freight thrown overboard consisted of 200 barrels of flour, which was shortly afterwards resaved by Capt. Hart of the tug LEVIATHAN in a more or less damaged state, and again put on board the propeller, after she had undergone some temporary repairs. Her damages are not serious and she proceeded on her voyage to Buffalo from here. - Detroit Free Press.
