The propeller GLOBE came down from the Sault last evening. On the GLOBE's
upward trip, Capt. McDonald discovered the Brig SEYMOUR, loaded with coal,
dismasted and deserted, in Lake Huron, and towed her into Point au Barques. She
has since been brought to this city for repairs.--------Detroit Democrat
