      LOSS OF THE SCHOONER PILGRIM. - Capt. Lucas, of the schooner PILGRIM, reached this port yesterday by the NIAGARA, says the Chicago Journal of the 12th., and reports that vessel gone ashore on Thursday morning last in a squall, on St. Helena Island. After going ashore, the gale swept her on the rocks, sinking her in five feet eight inches water. She was bound from Saginaw to Chicago with a load of lumber for A.G. Steele. She was valued at $4,000, and insured in the Merchantile Insurance Co, of Chicago.
