SCHOONER St. MARY SAFE. - A telegraph from Detroit, says the Chicago Democrat of the 10th. announces that the schooner St. MARY has arrived safe at the former city. "This vessel left Buffalo on the last of November, and was driven ashore on the Canada side of Lake Erie, where she remained in ice all winter. Two men were lost from her in attempting to get ashore on the ice after provisions. A successful attempt to get provisions was made and the captain and six men remained on board of her all winter, and have now brought her into port. She was loaded with $3,000 worth of railroad iron, for the Galena and Fox River Valley Roads."
