      BRIG GARDNER SUNK. - The brig F.B. GARDNER, owned by Mr. Gardner, of this city, ran upon a rock on Strawberry Reef, in Green Bay, knocked a hole in her bottom and sank. The damage will not likely be great, and the steam tug HAMILTON MORTON started last night to her relief, and will probably bring her down safely to a dry dock. - Chicago Tribune, 31st.
