CAPSIZED.--Mr. E. Goodell, Clerk of the propeller ODD FELLOW informs us that
on the downward trip of that vessel, she fell in with the schooner HENRY, capsized in
lake St. Clair. By the aid of the glass, they discovered her crew afloat in a little punt of
a boat, in imminent danger of being swamped. The ODD FELLOW was immediately
put about, and the crew, consisting of four men and a boy, were taken on board. The
HENRY was loaded with wood, and bound for this port.---- Detroit Tribune.
