Schooner J. F. WARNER.-- Intelligence reached here afew days since by one of the Lake Superior Steamers, that the Schooner J. F. WARNER had sustained serious damage to her bottom in the Sault River, and a greater portion of her cargo jettisoned to prevent her from sinking. In the meantime, nothing was done towards forwarding her any relief, owing to the information at hand being of an indefinite shape. By the steamer LAC LA BELLE, which arrived here on Monday, we learn she had arrived at the Sault dock, and her pumps kept in constant operation to keep her afloat. On recipt of this news at Detroit, the tug PRINDIVILLE, with steam pumps, was chartered to go to the sinking vessel and bring her to this port for dockage, and accordingly took her departure on Sunday evening at eight o'clock.
