THE SCHOONER WYMAN. -- The Detroit Tribune says: -- "We learn from a friend that the schooner WYMAN, which is now lying surrounded by ice near Bar Point, is in rather a bad situation. The WYMAN is laden with corn, and was on her way down from Chicago, when stopped by the cold weather of December. In the beginning of January, the ice, by which she was surrounded, was cleared away, and she was left free. But the cold weather which set in again, surrounded her with large masses, which the current has banked up against her, and has caused her to keel over. The breaking up of the ice will be attended with a very great risk to the vessel and cargo.
