WRECK OF THE ELLEN PIKE. -- Yesterday forenoon, say the Chicago Press of yesterday, the prlpeller McQUEEN arrived in port with the wreck of the schooner ELLEN PIKE in tow, which was capsized on Sunday last, off Waukegan. Her masts are gone, and she was filled to the gunwale, but as she was loaded with lumber, she was easily towed in. She has gone up the North Branch, where her cargo will be taken out of her. The ELLEN PIKE was insured for $2,000 in the Northwestern. Capt. Boyd states that when she capsized she carried very little canvas.

The schooner HOPE reports seeing four men clinging to the wreck, but could not get near enough, owing to the violence of the storm, to render them any assistance. It is feared they are all lost. -- Milwaukee American, Wednesday.
