DISASTERS.---The Milwaukee Sentinel states that Capt. Leigh, of the schooner EMMA, of this port, reports his vessel waterlogged at the Manitou Islands. She sprung a leak on Friday night, in a heavy sea, the night being very dark. The light breaking, the captain succeeded in getting her into the harbor at the Manitous, the water being up to the knees on the cabin floor. The EMMA is loaded with lumber, and will be pumped out and brought home safely, it is thought.
