MUTINY -The schooner BRISTOL, of Montreal, which put in here to land part of a cargo from Burlington, Vt., three or four days since, cleared on Wednesday night for Chicago. When off Racine, the crew refused to obey orders any further unless their wages were increased, which were below what is paid on this lake. The captain refused to submit to their demands, and with his mate and the cook, put his vessel about and brought her back to port, and appealed to the law for assistance. We did no hear of the settlement of the difficulty yesterday. -- Milwaukee Sentinel.
