When near Point Abino yesterday on her way from Port Stanley to this place, the steamer DISPATCH sprung a leak. Fortunately the propeller MANHATTAN, which was engaged at the wreck of the propeller GLOBE, went to her assistance, and relieved her of her freight and passengers, which she brought to this port. The DISPATCH by the use of extra pumps, suceeded in reaching here last evening, when she proceeded immediately to the railway for repairs.
