The DETROIT, Capt. Lee, arrived from St. Joseph's for which port he left here on the 10th. ult. Her log book shows the trip to have been most severe, having lost most of her sails, spars, &c. On the 24th. ult. during a tremendous gale at night in Lake Huron, a hand by the name of James Man, was washed from the bowsprit while stowing the jib. Another one washed from the same place was taken in at the main chain.
