      REPAIRED. -- The schooner THORNTON has been supplied with a new jib-boom and head-gear, and has sailed for Oswego. The schooner JOHN THURSBY has also been repaired. The repair of the fracture in her starboard bow is done in a most workman-like manner, and she is in all respects "as good as new." She will proceed to New Blatimore, to load with staves for Buffalo. -- Detroit Tribune.
