A dispatch from Cheboygan, Mich., October 22nd, says the schooner SENATOR, ashore at Detour, is waiting for the Insurance agent to take charge. The LEVIATHAN will, in the morning, take a look at her.

      The schooner SENATOR has been rescued and is now in the harbor at Detroit. She was abandoned by her owners to the underwriters, the Mercantile Insurance Company, of this city, being the principal party interested. Captain D.P. Nickerson, of this city, was sent to her, and, with the aid of a tug, pumps, etc., she was got off in one day. Her damages are not thought to be very serious. She had been stripped of everything valuable above water previous to the attempt by the underwriters to get her off. As there had been so many contradictory reports about the SENATOR we are glad that the matter has now been settled. We have not learned what will be done with the vessel, but she will probably be brought to this port and repaired.
