SCHOONER ADIRONDAC. - This vessel, which was recently dismasted on Lake Huron and found a refuge at Saugeen, arrived at this port yesterday forenoon, in tow of the tug MAYFLOWER. According to the statement of her captain, she has experienced a perilious time during the late storm, and far beyond any other we have yet recorded. During the night of the gale, she was thrown on her beam ends, and would have foundered but for the cutting away of her rigging, and allowing her spars, sails and rigging to go by the board, which were lost and not recovered. - Detroit Free Press, 10th.
