Delayed Vessel.

There has been considerable anxiety for several days past about vessels, which left Chicago a week ago last Saturday and at the present writing are not reported as having passed Detroit. Among the delayed vessels is the schooner Gilbert Mollison, Captain Joel A. Turner of this port. and although she has not been heard from we think that she is safely harbored in some bay distant from the usual course and will shortly make her appearance.

The gale in which the Mollison, with many others, was caught, continued Monday and Tuesday, October 27th and 18th, and with more than usual severity, and the foot of Lake Michigan has many wrecks which are not yet reported. Many vessels returned to Chicago and Milwaukee with canvas torn and in a disabled condition, while many took refuge in the numerous bays and under the lea of the islands.

The Mollison is a staunch vessel in good trim, but her canvas is tender and we think that she is disabled by torn canvas and is under one of the many islands making repairs. Captain Turner is a man of experience and excellent judgment and will, we are confident, bring his vessel through all right.
