      BARK PARANA. - The tug ZOUAVE, which left here on Tuesday last to go for the bark PARANA, dismasted on Lake Huron, returned on Friday evening with that vessel in tow, having performed the service in good time considering the rough weather experienced on the passage there and back. The PARANA presents the
appearance of having gone through rough usage in the late storm. Her fore and mainmast are gone with the loss of more or less of her yards, sails and rigging. Her bowsprit, jibboom, and everything forward is also carried away. She is at present detained here by orders from her owner at Cleveland, and will doubtless be taken to that port and laid up for the season. - Detroit Free Press.

The bark PARANA, Capt. Carpenter, which was wrecked near Saginaw Bay in the late gale, was towed into port this morning by the tug WM. B. CASTLE. She is almost a total wreck, her spars having all been blown away.
