Full Text

RESCUE. -- We learn from the Detroit Free Press that the PENNSYLVANIA, Capt. Cotton, on her late trip up, when about 30 miles from the mouth of the Detroit River picked up the crew of the KINGMAN schooner, who were clinging to the bottom of that vessel; also the crew of another schooner, believed to be the MARENGO, in a like condition. Both vessels had been capsized in the violent wind of Wednesday night, and but for the timely rescue by Capt. Cotton, those on board must have perished.
