PILOT Schooner, cargo wheat, when at anchor at Detroit, was sunk by the bark DE SOTO, running into her. Raised.

      . . . . .

The work of raising the sunken schooner PILOT is being pushed forward rapidly under the superintendence of Mr. George Irwin, who is well posted in that line of business. We regret to notice that several of our side-wheel steamers pass so near and under full steam as to greatly disturb the work as it progresses. We trust that such captains will bear this in mind, and thus prevent any further annoyances of this kind. ----- Detroit Tribune
