Port Huron.---Captain Hunt of the steambarge R. MARTINI, which lost her rudder and went ashore on Point au Barque, in a blinding snow storm, jettisoned some of the lumber and got her off. In her disabled state he worked her back to Grindstone City and then telegraphed to Sand beach for a tug. The tug PORTER went and towed the barge to Port Huron, where she will be repaired.
