      Detroit, Nov. 1. -- Schooner PALMER with a cargo of stone, went ashore at North Point, Lake Huron, last night. She will probably suffer much damage from the northeast gale now blowing.
      The work of releasing the steamer TUSCARORA at the Lime Kilns is not progressin as rapidly as was hoped. In an effort to pull her to the Amherstburg dock the steamer bumped over boulders, increasing the inflow of water. The cargo is being lightered. The SAGINAW and WALES brought loads this morning from the wreck and at once returned for more.
