Cleveland.---The schooner MONTGOMERY which received a bad shaking up in the late gale on Lake Huron, went into drydock and a survey was held. Mr. Miller on the part of the underwriters, and Captain Murphy, on the part of the owners. Her hull has undoubtedly sustained considerable injury, besides the loss of sail, booms, gaffs, centerboard, springing of her foremast, etc.

Cleveland.---After a survey and thorough repairs, the schooner MONTGOMERY cleared from this port again on Saturday night for St. Ignace. Her total bill for survey and repairs amounts to about $1,311. This amount has been largely expended in a new foremast, new centerboard, new pump, repairs to sails, recalking, etc.
