      ON A REEF. - The brig COMMERCE, which passed up on the 9th inst., met with a disaster which prevented her from continuing the voyage, and obliging her to return to this port for repairs. When near Detour she ran on a reef, doing serious damages to her bottom and dispacing her center-board. She arrived here on Wednesday evening, leaking badly, and will doubtless need extensive repairs. - Detroit Free Press, 17th.
