The MONTEREY is of 308 tons burden, and is owned by Merrick & Co., of this port, and is valued at about $10,000.

      Port Huron, Nov. 13. - The tug MOCKING BIRD, with the schooner J.R. BENSON, which she rescued from Middle Island, arrived down this evening. The BENSON is in good condition and will be docked for repairs.

KING lost nearly all her canvas in the late gale near Alpena, and tows to Chicago.
