Steamer Huron, - This vessel, so unfortunate on Saturday night last in leaving our harbor, was raised last evening, and towed round to Mr. Baker's Dry Dock, on which she will be hauled, it is thought, this afternoon. Capt. Wm. Morgan, of the North Western Insurance Company, has superintended the raising of the "Huron," using the company's steam pump, together with two belonging to the Mutual Insurance Company, of Buffalo. She was raised by means of sinking boats under and lighting her sufficient to place a jacket over the leaks, when the pumps soon cleared her of water. The damage to the vessel is comparatively slight, and she will soon be put in running order again. The North Western, we learn, yesterday promptly paid the damage on the flour which they insured on board the "Huron."
