Schooner FREEMAN, ashore near Point Au Pelee. Got off

      A VESSEL GOT OFF. - The Detroit Advertiser says: Tug OSWEGO, Capt. Kimball, arrived Saturday morning with the schooner FREEMAN in tow, having been successful in rescueing her from the beach below Point au Pelee. Her damages are not as serious as at first apprehended. She has gone into Campbell's & Owen's dry dock for repairs.
The FREEMAN was high and dry on shore, which rendered the chances of her removal rather doubtful, but with the OSWEGO it was a mere matter of time, and, as on former occasions, "Captain Joe" was bound to bring in what he went after.
