The schooner which was towed to Detroit on Friday afternoon was the JAMES WADE, and not the J.H. MEAD, as at first reported. She left Detroit on Thursday with a cargo of wheat bound for Buffalo, and on lake Erie collided with the barge GENOA, losing her headgear. She is still at Springwells dry-dock, and is awaiting permission to tow to Buffalo without repairing. Her cargo is uninjured.
