THE ST. ANDREWS OFF. -- Captain Elphicke, of the Traders Insurance Company, received a dispatch this morning announcing that the CRUSADER succeeded in pulling the ST. ANDREW off the South Manitous; another dispatch states that the cargo of 27,000 bushels of wheat was all wet, and would probably be a total loss; orders were sent to have her towed to Chicago, but she probably was taken to Port Huron. --- Chicago Post, 24th.
