      L. W. Mixer, Esq., agent of the Lake Navigation Company, has received a letter from the captain of the schooner ENTERPRISE, at Mackinac, stating that she had been pulled off the reef by the SALVOR, and was now sunk in nine feet of water at Mackinaw dock, considerably damaged -- 4,000 bushels of wheat saved.

THE LEVIATHAN. -- The Lake Navigation Company's tug LEVIATHAN came down Saturday night, with the schooner ENTERPRISE in tow. The sight of her is good for sore eyes. She is iceberg proof, and would make a suitable "courier" for Nepture, if the old gent should happen to get in a tight place. Today her bows are to be encased in iron, and she will start tomorrow to get off the GAME COCK, after which she will turn her attention to the UNCLE BEN.
