      CHANGE OF PROGRAMME. - The steamer MAGNET, which had been directed to go to the relief of the bark FAME at Point au Pelee, has had her destination changed to Lake Superior, where she has gone to attend to the propeller CONCORD, sunk, as already reported. The steamer T.F. PARK was, in consequence, sent to the relief of the FAME. - Detroit Free Press, 20th.

      PROPELLER CONCORD. - We learn that a private telegram was received here yesterday from Capt. McIntyre, stating that the propeller CONCORD had been got off and was at Marquette, loading. It will be remembered that the CONCORD has been ashore on Manitou Island some days and it was feared she would prove a total loss. The MAGNET went to her assistance, but has been detained by the severe weather lately, and it is presumed that the CONCORD got off by the exertions of her own crew. - Detroit Post.

      PROPELLER CONCORD. - This steamer, which met with a disaster at Point Keewenaw, Lake Superior, arrived here yesterday afternoon. The MAGNET, which went from here to her relief, returned about the same hour. She reached the point of disaster in time to render important service in getting her afloat. With her steam pumps, which were at once placed on board the CONCORD, it required but a brief space of time to get her afloat and under way for Marquette. The CONCORD's damages are not as serious as was anticipated. Aside from a small hole in her bottom, she sustained no injury. After her arrival at Marquette, she took on 100 tons of iron ore which she brought to this city, and was easily managed, without the aid of the steam pumps to keep her free. - Detroit Free Press, 30th.

A telegram to Capt. Dobbins yesterday morning states that the propeller CONCORD is ashore at Keweenaw Point, Lake Erie (this is incorrect and should be Lake Superior). She is full of water. Steam pumps have been sent to her relief from Detroit.
