The schrs. W.J. PRESTON and REED CASE were disabled in centerboard, in the gale on Lake Erie. The latter boat lost hers and is awaiting a new one. The schr. ADIRONDAC arrived here in tow of the tug RIVER QUEEN, in a completely dismantled condition. She will require a full set of spars, including a bowsprit and jibboom. The schr. J. HINCKLEY threw overboard her cargo in Lake Erie. Capt. Hugh Coynes on behalf of himself and Frank Root, the sole survivors of the lost schr. WHITE SQUALL, return thanks to the people of Tawas and to Capt. McGregor of the stm. BENTON, for kind attentions paid the unfortunate sailor who was cast upon the beach at that place. - Detroit Tribune
