The Schr. J.M. Hughs, of Cleveland, while on her passage from the Welland Canal to this place, discovered during the gale of yesterday, about midway between the Eighteen Mile Creek and the Canada shore, a signal of distress flying at a distance; Capt. Glazier, of the Hughs, at once manfully resolved to hasten to the relief of the distressed, although at the peril of his own noble craft.

The signal proved to be flying from the only remaining spar of the Schooner Mobile, of Sackets Harbor, which had lost her foremast, and was thereby rendered totally unmanageable; the Captain and crew of the former vessel, by dint of skillful management, succeeded in spite of the roughness of the Lake, in getting a line to the latter and towing her safely into Niagara.
