Port Huron, August 1. -- The schooner REED CASE, which got aground below the Grand Trunk elevators, at Point Edward, was released last evening by the steam barge H. C. SCHNOOR. It is rumored that the SCHNOOR was libeled by the Canadian customs authorities for wrecking in Canadian waters, but this report is denied by the officers of the barge.
