SCHOONER DENMARK OFF. -- The Chicago Press says: - The schooner DENMARK which was reported ashore at Point au Pelee, has been gotton off by the steam tug RESCUE and is now on her way to this place. The DENMARK is loaded with railroad iron and lumber. She was in a perilous situation, and but for the timely assistance by the RESCUE must have proved a total loss. The RESCUE is a very powerful tug, on of the very best of her class, and is just the kind of vessel required at this point. Would it not be good policy to secure such a one at Chicago ?
