THE DREADNAUGHT. -- This vessel, which lay in a disabled condition on the Saugeen shore, fast in the ice, arrived here last night, in tow of the J.D. Morton. After innumerable hardships, her crew made new sails from the remnants of the old ones, and with eighteen inches of ice on her decks, succeeded in beating out and running to Port Huron, where she took a tug to Detroit, arriving here at six last night.
