FROM THE SAULT. -- A dispatch from sault Ste. Marie, Mich., dated Oct. 30th, says: The JOHN MARTIN, bound up, loaded with coal, grounded in Neebish last Monday, the 23rd, and owing to the rapid current they were unable to do anything in relieving her. For three days two tugs and lighters have been working at her, and succeeded in getting her off this morning, when she took another shift and got on again. She is uninjured, and will be lightered off in a day or two.
