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. The tug NIAGARA, working at the schooner MONTEREY, was forced to come after an additional pump, the vessel being so badly damaged that one pump would not raise her. The schooner JAMES C. KING lost nearly all her canvas in the late gale near Alpena, and tows to Chicago.
