The schooner W. J. WHALING, in attempting to make this port on Tuesday night, drifted against the Erie Basin Breakwater. She had a cargo of 15,400 bu wheat from Milwaukee. Capt. Munson, Marine Inspector, went to her assistance early yesterday morning, with the tug STILLMAN WITT, and after working unceasingly all the day, succeeded in getting her off about 5 o'clock, and towed her in. She has received very little damage, and her cargo is uninjured. So says the Express.
