THE FLORETTA SANK

Milwaukee, September 19. - [Special.] - A Manitowoc dispatch says that the crew of the schooner Floretta reached there this evening and report that the Floretta foundered eighteen miles off that port. She sprung a leak in the heavy sea last night and the water gained so fast on the pumps that the crew took to the yawl. When half a mile from the vessel, they heard a loud crash. Pieces of her cabin flew in the air and she sunk. The crew of seven reached Manitowoc in the yawl. The vessel was ore laden from Escanaba to Chicago. She was valued at $8,000.
