The CAMBRIA laden with railroad iron, which sprung a leak and grounded at Long Pt., Lake Erie, a few days since, was got off and taken to Detroit by the steam tug NIAGARA. The cargo of the CAMBRIA was consigned to Port Stanley, but owing to an insufficient depth of water at that place, in the vessels present condition it was thought best to tow her trhough to Detroit for dockage and repairs.
