PROPELLER FALCON.---A dispatch from Capt Woodward of the propeller FALCON
state that the cause of his leaking was his being run into by the schooner C. REEVES.
The schooner had all her head gear carried away, and was in a disabled condition. Capt.
Woodward was obliged to throw overboard his deck load to keep his vessel up. He then
put into Grand river for repairs. He left again on Saturday night, for Buffalo, but fell in
with the C. REEVES, in her disabled condition, and towed her back to Grand River.
