SPRUNG A LEAK. - We learn from the Detroit Advertiser of the 22nd. inst., that the schooner ABIAH, Capt. Wood, from Buffalo, laden with 500 tons of iron and a locomotive for one of the railroads building to Detroit, sprung a leak just as she got into Lake Huron, on the passage up. She got back into St. Clair River, and was to be towed to Ives' dry dock at Detroit, for repairs.
