      The schooner JOSEPH GRANT, of Oswego, and owned by E. Williams, of that place, was dismasted off the Foxes, Lake Michigan, on Tuesday of this week, by a severe squall. Her mainmast only was carried away. She will work her way down as far as Mackinaw, where she remains until the arrival of the tug REINDEER, which leaves here today to bring her to this port for repairs. The barque INVINCIBLE, which passed down last night, brought the above intelligence. The GRANT is grain loaded, bound down. --- Detroit Free Press.
