The captain of the prop. VANDERBILT, which arrived down yesterday, reported an unknown propeller and 2 barges ashore at Long Pt. The propeller appeared to be painted green, but the distance was too great to ascertain her name. A special dispatch from Port Colborne reports the prop. SCHNOOR ashore at the same place, and it is probable that this is the name of the boat seen by the VANDERBILT.

Capt. Charles Cash, owner of the barges BELLE CASH and HANNAFORD, and part ower of the stmb. SCHNOOR, which are ashore at Long Pt., was in this city yesterday fitting out an expedition to go to their assistance. He secured the tug SARAH E. BRYANT, Capt. Robert Byers, and several strong hawsers, from this port. The tug NEW ERA, of Port Rowan, and the MAGNET of Detroit, have also been engaged for the expedition, and it is believed that with good weather they will be able to rleive the boats in only a few feet of water. They rest easy on the sand in only a few feet of water, and up to the time of the captain's leaving had not leaked a drop. The BRYANT left for Long Pt. late last evening.

Detroit, Sept. 30. -- The steamer MAGNET leaves here this afternoon to go to the relief of the steam barge H. G. SCHNOOR, which is ashore with her barges at Long Point, and in danger of being broken up. The SCHNOOR is an exception to the general rule, and is a comparatively new craft, well found in every particular, her consorts are worthy of a like recommendation..

Messrs. B. Whitaker & Co. of Detroit, received word from the wrecking expedition sent to one of their vessels, the steam barge SCHNOOR, ashore at Long Point. The MAGNET was sent to her relief, and found she lay in four feet of water, 759 feet from eight feet of water, and commenced operations at 8 a. m., and by 8 p. m., they had her off and on her way to Cleveland. Her damages were principally confined to the unshipping of her stern post.
