Chicago, June 18 - The stm. JOHN STIRLING, formerly the VANDERBILT, has been bought by the Northern Michigan Line and will be used in the freight service between Chicago and Northern Michigan points, taking the place of the stm. ILLINOIS, which has been chartered to the Crosby Line of Milwaukee.
      The STIRLING was bought about a year ago by a coterie of Chicago gamblers, headed by Mont Tennes. After much money had been spent in transforming the old freight steamer into a gambling ship, which was run in opposition to the CITY OF TRAVERSE, the scheme fell through and the STIRLING has since been lying idle at a dock.
