THE NIGHTINGALE. -- The latest news from the schooner NIGHTINGALE, ashore at Fox Island, is by the propeller MOHAWK, which passed down this morning. Capt. Pheatt states that after a few thousand bushels of grain were thrown overboard she floated, but immediately afterwards drifted on again. The tug LEVIATHAN had been sent to her, and possibly ere this she has been got off. She had sustained no damage sufficient to cause her to spring a leak. --- Detroit Tribune.
