We learn from the Chicago papers that the brig SULTAN, ashore below Mackinac was owned by T. Jones of that city, her hull insured for $6,000 in the New York Sun Mutual, and the freight $800 in the Chicago Mutual. The iron was for the Galena Railroad.

THE SULTAN.---The brig SULTAN which was driven ashore with a valuable cargo of iron near the Straits of Mackinac last fall, is about to be raised. The propeller UNDERWRITER took up pumps and apparatus one day last week, to make an attempt to raise her or to save the cargo.----- Detroit Democrat

The brig SULTAN, which went ashore last fall on Lake Huron with a load of railroad iron, has been raised, and the iron reshipped to Chicago. The vessel was purchased by Mr. H.C. Walker & Co. of this city, who have refitted her and she is now taking on a load of lumber at Sheboygan. -- Buff. Express.

      . . . . .

The Detroit Democrat says the brig SULTAN, which was wrecked and sunk near Forty Mile Point, last fall, laden with railroad iron, has been unloaded, the iron saved, and she is now lying in the stream at anchor, off Bloom & Whitcomb's dock. She will probably be put into the dry dock, and come out in a few days as good as new, all ready for the fall trade.
