      . . . . .

      The schooner MERIDIAN, owned we believe at Port Huron, run on Point au Barque reef last Monday evening at seven o'clock, and in all probability will become a total wreck. She is loaded with shingle bolts bound for Cleveland. She lies in a very precarious situation, and is full of water. The captain of her has arrived here in quest of a tug to go to her relief. She is uninsured. - Detroit Advertiser.
