SCHOONER CAPSIZED. - The beautiful new clipper schooner NORTH YUBA, of Manitowoc, which left this port on Sunday last, about 10 o'clock, A. M., was capsized in a squall, about three miles off Racine, on the same evening, at five o'clock. The propeller GENERAL TAYLOR was near by at the time, and went to her assistance. The wife of Capt. Scoville and child, were taken off and landed at Racine, but the crew concluded to remain on the wreck, and try to right her. Two vessels, near by, were approached, to render assistance when the TAYLOR left. The YUBA was owned by Mr. Durgan, of this city, and was not insured. - Chicago Tribune, 7th.
