      SCHOONER "MAY QUEEN" DISABLED.---Yesterday noon the steamer KEYSTONE STATE came into port, having in tow the new schooner MAY QUEEN, owned by Kellogg and Strong and S.B. Grant, of this city, loaded with iron and bound here. The MAY QUEEN sprung a leak some days since, and was with great difficulty kept afloat. She was waterlogged and disabled when brought in by the KEYSTONE STATE. This is rather hard luck for a first trip. -- Milwaukee Sentinel, 4th.
