      The schooner GREY EAGLE, laden with wheat, from Milwaukee for this port, encountered heavy weather before reaching the Straits, carrying away her chain plate and foreboom, completely disabling her so that she was obliged to return to Milwaukee. She was towed to the Manitous and there made some temporary repairs. Her cargo was discharged immediately after arrival.
