The Detroit Advertiser of yesterday, states that "the brig BLACK HAWK, which suffered very severely in the gale on Lake Huron, on last Thursday, arrived her today on her way to Cleveland, to be repaired. She put back to Port Huron, where she unloaded. The hull of the BLACK HAWK was strained, so that she leaked badly. Several of her sails were blown away, and her main-boom and some of her spars sprung.
