The propeller-barge A.G. MOWRY, of Milan, which for a short time past has been plying between Saginaw and Sandusky, broke her machinery a day or two since on Lake Huron, and was consequently left at the mercy of the elements. Up to the present writing we know nothing as to her fate, though it is probable ere this she has either been picked up or found safe anchorage. Her owners have been telegraphed as to her situation.
