The barque CANADA, Capt. Bantam, which left this port on Thursday last for Buffalo, was seen off Point Sauble by the brig SULTAN, which arrived at this port yesterday. The barque had carried away her fore-top mast and jib-boom, and lost her yards, sails and rigging. All hands were at work clearing away the wreck, when last seen from the SULTAN. - Chicago Dem. Press

The barque CANADA, in the gale last week, broke her fore-top mast, which was taken down. This was the only injury she sustained. She arrived in port this morning.
