Full Text

The schooner JOHN S. MINOR, of this port, sailed about the first of April on a trading excursion to Georgian Bay, and, no tiding having been heard from her, it was feared she was lost. She arrived safely at Port Huron yesterday morning, however, so the DART reports, having been caught in the ice when she first entered the Bay, and drifted about no less than three weeks before she succeeded in extricating herself. About a week ago she got out, went where she designed, and returned safely. She reports but little ice now in the Bay.
