DISASTER ON LAKE HURON. - The schooner MERCER, which took her departure on Saturday last from Saginaw for Toledo, sprung a leak off Point au Barques on Sunday, and was obliged to throw overboard a portion of her deck load to prevent her from foundering. Her troubles, however, did not end here. At Port Hope she got ashore on a point, and was again compelled to dispose of more of her cargo in the same manner, when she came on to Detroit, arriving here yesterday. - Detroit Free Press, 20th.
