The Coast wrecking stmr. RESCUE, Capt. Cotton, arrived at this port Wednesday night from Port Huron with a quantity of freight just recovered from the prop. WABASH, lost over a year ago off Lexington. The cargo thus saved consists of a few hogsheads of glassware, such as globes and chimneys for lamps, all in good order and a few car wheels, leather, etc. etc., which are landed at A. Cheesborough & Co.'s warehouse. The idea of recovering the wreck has been long since abandoned. The RESCUE left here this morning to visit and recover if possible a number of wrecks sunk in Lake Erie. - Detroit Tribune
