      WRECKING. - The wrecking steamer LEVIATHAN is employed in getting from the beach the schooner E. KANTER, which went ashore last fall some two miles east of Leland. She was laden with railroad iron. The cargo is being taken out of her and will be nearly all saved. When thus lightened Capt. Kirtland thinks there will be no difficulty, with sufficient steam pumps, to float her and get her into port. - Detroit Tribune.
