By a despatch from Capt. Frederickson, of the schr. SASCO, to H.H. Smith, owner, we learn that she was run into on Lake Huron, last evening, by the schr. EXILE, carrying away her mainmast and otherwise disabling her so that she will have to be towed to Buffalo for repairs. The extent of the damage could not be learned. The SASCO was bound for this port, lumber laden, and the EXILE was light for Lake Superior.
