The Cleveland Plain Dealer of the 20th. says At daylight this morning, a vessel, supposed to be the MARENGO, of Detroit,was discovered some two or three miles off this Port, lying at anchor, with a signal of distress hoisted. The sea had been so rough as to prevent ascertaining her particular distress, or rendering her any assistance. It is feared she has lost her sails, as none can be seen, or else lost some of her hands, and the balance are unable to raise the anchor.One thing is certain.
She needs help, or her signal would not be kept flying, but there can be no relief until the gale abates.

The MARENGO which we mentioned as being at anchor of Cleveland was this morning towed in by the GREAT WESTERN. She was on her way from Buffalo in ballast, calculating to load with coal for Detroit, she was out during the gale and anchored at 7 o'clock yesterday morning having lost all her sails and otherwise injured. -- Cleveland Plains Dealer.Sat.
