      The QUAYLE, which left here a few days since in search of the brig WILLIAMS capsized in Lake Huron, has been successful in finding the lost vessel not far distant from where the disaster took place. On being found one of her spars had broke adrift, while the other was cut adrift to right the vessel, which was by this means accomplished. She is now on her way to this port and will probably reach here today. She can be put in good sailing trim once more at no great expense, which will be welcome news to her owners, who unfortunately, had her uninsured. - Detroit Post, Saturday.
