      . . . . .

      We learn that the little steamer QUEEN, used in the Lake and River St. Clair as a sort of tug and wood boat, was wrecked and sunk on Friday afternoon in Lake St. Clair, near the mouth of the south channel, in eighteen feet water. The crew were rescued by the steamer PLOUGH BOY. The QUEEN was valued at about $4,000, and we believe was owned in Canada. - Detroit Advertiser, 21st.
