      GODERICH.---The schooner A.C. MAXWELL, which went ashore near Goderich December 11, still remains where she first struck. The wrecking expedition, consisting of the tug ADMIRAL D.D. PORTER, with steam pump, etc., came here to release her but had to return to Port Huron, being unable to do anything on account of the ice and severe weather. The vessel lies easy, and it is expected she will be got off next spring without further damage.
