The Schooner ANDREWS - Hamilton, Ont., Dec. 16. - The schooner ABBIE L. ANDREWS, which left Charlotte last Thursday, coal laden, in tow of the steam barge RESOLUTE, bound for Deseronto, arrived here yesterday in a badly disabled condition, after terrible suffering of the crew. Near Kingston the ANDREWS broke away from the RESOLUTE and since then the crew have had a terrible fight for their lives, and when she arrived here she had a coating of ice six inches thick and was almost destitute of anything in the shape of a sail. It will be impossible for her to proceed to Deseronto and local dealers will take her coal.
