CAPSIZED. - We learn from the Waukegan Chronicle that the schooner HERALD,
from Racine, freighted with wood, was capsized a few miles north of Chicago, about
5 o'clock on Sunday afternoon, and drifted about six miles north of this port, when she
went ashore. She was discovered by several of our citizens on Monday morning, who
immediately manned a snall boat and went to the rescue of her crew, whom they found
lashed to the vessel, and in a suffering condition. They were severely drenched and
their limbs benumbed with the cold. - Chicago Journal.
