      The Detroit Advertiser of yesterday says: The tug REINDEER, which left here a day or two since to go to the relief of the schooner GRACE MURRAY, ashore at Point au Pelee Island has returned. We are unable to determine what success attended her efforts, as she passed directly on to the River St. Clair without calling.
