p.2 Another Vessel Capsized - The schooner John Lillie, with a cargo of lumber, from Michigan, was capsized in the squall of Saturday afternoon, three miles from the land, nearly off Gross Point. The propeller Pocahontas fell in with and took off the crew all safe. The steamer Michigan was going to her assistance on Saturday evening.

Her cargo, we are told, is a total loss. Vessel insured in the North Western."
