She went to pieces in a severe gale at the mouth of St. Joseph River on the 9th. inst.--Engine and furniture principally saved. The writer speaks in the highest terms of the daring exertions of Captain Dingley and crew of the schooner MARENGO, who succeeded in saving the lives of the passengers and crew of the PIONEER at the immediate hazard of their own. ---- Detroit Free Press.
