A correspondent at Port Huron telegraphs as follows: "The report that the schooner GEORGE WORTHINGTON, ashore on St. Helena, had gone to pieces is unfounded. The wrecking tug WINSLOW is working at her, and with a continuation of the present favorable weather will succeed in relasing her.

The wreckers are making good headway on the schr. GEORGE WORTHINGTON, ashore at St. Helena Island, Lake Superior, and have strong hopes of getting her off. The vessel is not as badly injured as was at first supposed.
