THE ATAUNTO. -- The Chicago Times off the 20th says: The schooner ATAUNTO, which was driven ashore at Carp River last fall, got off, brought to Chicago in a badly demoralized condition, abandoned to the insurance companies, and sold by them to Senator Ferry, of Grand Haven, was rebuilt at the latter place during the past winter and spring, and converted into a barge. She arrived here on her first trip on Thursday, with a cargo of lumber. The ATAUNTO proved profitable to her owners while a full-fledged schooner, and will unquestionably in due time render good service in her present capacity.
