The schr. DARIEN was driven ashore at Rondeau on Thursday night last week, since which time we have been unable to learn further particulars. The stm. MAGNET, Capt. Hodges, left here late on Saturday night to go to her assistance and doubtless has since got her off. - Det. Adv.

The schr. DARIEN, reported ashore at Rondeau, is off and was taken to Toledo by the stm. MAGNET. Capt. Hodeges found the DARIEN high and dry on the beach. The work of getting her afloat was soon accomplished. The fact that the MAGNET was only 3 days absent from Detroit, in making the run and hauling off the DARIEN, shows conclusively the superiority of her for wrecking purposes.
