The bark H.H. BROWN, when some 10 miles above Pt. au Barques, on Friday nioght, was struck by a sudden gust of wind, which carried away her mainsail, and rendered it unfit for further service. Her mizzen gaff topsail, which was taken in, was also blown from the bolt ropes. She also sustained other damages, and was obliged to return to the River St. Clair for repairs.
