Port Huron.---The tug PORTER arrived here with the wrecked schooner AUSTIN, which was ashore at Point Clark, Ont. She discharged her cargo of limestone, and went into Dunford & Alverson's dock to be repaired. Captain Mcleod, of the underwriters held a survey. Her bottom is badly used up. She will need almost an entire new bottom. The expense of releasing and repairs will be a good big bill.
