NOT LOST. - Charles Peterson and John Lynch, the sailors of the schooner Geo. F. Foster, who were supposed to have been drowned on Thursday last, arrived in Chicago on Saturday and from them we received the following particulars of the recent disaster: They state that when Grimes fell overboard, the yawlboat was lowered, and they proceeded to rescue, if possible, the drowning man. Their efforts were, however, fruitless. They then started for the schooner, but the vessel was not in sight, and, after drifting for about an hour or more, they concluded that the captain had left them to their fate. At this time they were about fifteen miles from Holland. They made for the shore, and arrived at Kalamazoo at about 5 o'clock p.m. - Chicago Times.
