      . . . . .

      A private telegraph dispatch from Detroit, informs us that the propeller St. JOSEPH reports the Brigs CHAMPLAIN, Capt. Dixon, and BLACK HAWK, as both dismasted, and lying at Presque Isle. Capt. Moore, of the BLACK HAWK, had been lost overboard and drowned.

The new vessel KENOSHA, 380 tons, Capt. W.M. Egan, built by Peck, Masters & Co., Ohio City, is prepared to leave for Chicago; as is the BLACK HAWK, 380 tons, Capt. W.A. Lamb, built by Stevens & Presley, Ohio City, for A. H. Barney. The latter vessel takes full cargo of coal, and will probably sail on Wednesday.
