      . . . . .

The Chicago Tribune says:- The three masted schooner LADY OF THE LAKE, of Cleveland, with a cargo of railroad iron from Buffalo, while making our harbor on Tuesday forenoon, got foul of the barque NORTH STAR, aground on the bar. The schooner lost her foresail, damaged her bulwarks, and pounded heavily on the bar for two hours, causing her to leak badly. She got off by the aid of her sail and hawser, but will have to go into the dry dock to repair.
