      The Canadian schooner STAR, from Cleveland to Buffalo, loaded with grindstones, scrap iron and black walnut gun-stocks, has been ashore and full of water for several days, at Biddle's Bay, Lake Erie. She had been stripped of her sails, rigging, anchors and chains. Tuesday night the tug E.P. DORR, with a steam pump and lighter, went to her, pumped her out and brought her into this port yesterday morning. She has discharged her cargo and gone into dry dock for repairs.
