The remainder of the crew reached the shore safely. Off Forestville the propeller G. W. DYER is at anchor disabled, rudder and shoe are lost. A sailor, name unknown, who was injured by the wheel of the barge WEEKS, died at Port Huron yesterday.. The schooner STARLING is full of water at Lyons Head, Georgian Bay, the result of being in the gale. She was bound for Buffalo. Near the Beavers, Lake Michigan, the schooner MINERAL STATE is reported ashore.
