SCHOONER RAMBLER.-We were shown a dispatch on Saturday from Captain Packard,
which states that the schooner RAMBLER, which went ashore at Michigan City some weeks since, with a load of lumber, will be a total loss. Two steam pumps were set to work but were unable to free her. She had been stripped and abandoned.
