      Just as we go to press we learn that the tug LEVIATHAN, Capt. Hart, has succeeded in pulling off the schr. A. BRADLEY, which went ashore on the Point in the great gale of Thursday, and towed her alongside of Hulbert, Kirtland & Co.'s dock. The steam pumps are constantly at work. It is as much as they can do to keep her afloat. She is no doubt badly damaged. -- Mackinac Herald, 23rd.
