The Mollison
The Yawl Washed Ashore on Lake Michigan.

Messrs. E. & O. Mitchell, of this city, received the following despatch this morning from R.P. Fitzgerald of Milwaukee:"The yawl boat of the schooner Mollison washed ashore at Good Harbor, on mainland, southeast of North Manitou island, November 3d. No particulars of the vessel."

The charges we have consulted do not locate Good Harbor; but we should judge that it is a small harbor between Grand and Little Traverse. It is thought by some that the yawl containing four men, which was seen by the crew of the schooner John Weber some days after the Mollison was missing, was the Mollison's boat, but we do not incline to such belief. We thin, when the particulars come to hand, that it will be found that the boat of the Mollison got adrift from the schooner either by the davits or falls breaking or by the eye bolts in the bottom of the boat pulling out. We do not think the crew had time to take to the boat before the vessel went down.
