      PROPELLER ILLINOIS. -- On Friday evening the propeller ILLINOIS (W. T. Co.) bound down, with a cargo of wheat, ran ashore about two miles below Waukegan. It was very foggy at the time. Shortly after she went on, the propeller PLYMOUTH came to in sight of her, and attempted to pull her off, but after parting two hawsers, abandoned the idea. On Saturday afternoon, Mr. Robinson was preparing to start with the propeller McQUEEN, to try and get her off, when received a despatch stating that she was off - all right.
