SCOW LOOSE.---The scow W.I. PEMBROKE, belonging to Mr. Alexander Clemens, of
Marblehead, and which was laid up in Sandusky Bay, broke from her moorings a few days ago and was drifted into the lake. Mr.Clemens wrote to Capt.Greenhaigh of the tug NIAGARA, requesting him to keep a look out for her, and if possible, get her into some port. The first of last week she was seen about five miles off the east end of Kelly's Island. She had no mast or running rigging aboard.
      Capt. Greenhaigh has fitted up his tug and will go out in search of her as soon as the ice will permit. Mr.Clemens wished him to find her, but would "not pay for hunting for her, unless he found the miserable old carcass."
