SCHOONER FORFAR. -- We learn from the Chicago Press that on Sunday evening last the Lake Navigation Company's propeller LEVIATHAN, came into port with the wreck of the schooner FORFAR, which was capsized in a squall twenty miles out in the lake, on Friday last. Her masts are broken off and her sails torn; but otherwise she is not badly damaged.
