THE BANNER.---This fine brig, Capt. Brown, came into our river last evening, two weeks out from Buffalo. She was aground three days on the Flats at St. Clair. In coming around the bend of our river, a feat of high seamanship for a vessel of her length, her yawl hanging on her stern was crushed by contact with the barque Wm. STURGES, refitting at Dyer's Dock.----Chicago Journal, 31st.
