Port Huron, April 12. -- The bark WILLIAM H. VANDERBILT, owned by Watson, of Buffalo, arrived at 7:30 this morning dismasted, and her jibboom gone, the fore and main carried away below the trucks, and the mizzen gone at the deck. Captain Mullen states that when three miles to the southern of Cheboygan light, the wind blew very hard and puffy off the land about south south west, and her spars went by the board. The tug MOCKING BIRD was about a mile in advance, with four vessels in tow, which she let go, and went to her assistance. She will be towed to Buffalo, where she will receive repairs.
