The steamer FRANCIS SMITH, from Port Arthur, arrived here on the 24th. Captain Robertson reports the schooner STRAUBENZIE ashore inside Point Porphyr in a comparatively safe position, and will not receive much damage. Her rudder was carried away and tow line parted. The steambarge LOTHAIR subsequently had to let go the barge CORISANDE, which vessel weathered the gale and made Sault Ste Marie all right. Captain Symes of the LOTHAIR, got into Jackfish Bay and is now hunting the north shore for his barges. - Owen Sound Report.
