Detroit, Sept. 27.-- The bark WENONA passed through the Straits of Mackinaw yesterday morning leaking badly. She was run ashore at Duncan City to keep her from sinking. The tut CRUSADER will raise and tow her to this port.

The Cheboygan Free Press of Thursday says: The bark WENONA, loaded with pig iron, bound for Cleveland, sprung a leak on Tuesday last on Lake Michigan, near the Manitous, and after much labor got into Duncan Bay. The tug CRUSADER has been at work on her and is going to take her down to the first dry-dock. The crew were nearly exhausted and at first refused to work any more at the pumps when off Waugochance, but the captain finally induced them to keep at it until she reached Duncan , as above stated.
