The schooner MARY LUDWIG and C. J. ROEDER and propeller HEATH, all recently in trouble, are in port. They will undergo repairs as soon as they are unloaded. The ZACK CHANDLER, from below, is leaking, as already announced lost a man overboard outside. Several of the lower lakers are making water and will have to be docked.
Among others, the schooner JOHN MINER came in yesterday with a cargo of lumber, she showed signs of having been in the late blow, as some of her jibs and other sails were on deck, awaiting repairs.
