The steamer JAY COOKE retirned to Detroit Monday afternoon having succeeded in rescuing the scow MARY & LUCY, which some days since got ashore at Put-In-Bay. She was towed to port for the purpose of making the necessary repairs and the discharge of her cargo. The COOKE soon after her return left for Sandusky, taking on board a steam pump for the relief of the schr. H.F. MERRY, which it is stated, was leaking badly in Sandusky Bay.

The schr. MERRY was placed in drydock at Detroit Thursday, and preparations for a survey of her damages were being carried out. A part of her deck-load consisting of walnut lumber, was thrown overboard to save the rest of it and the vessel from going to pieces on the rocks. This was not recovered.
