CANADIAN SCHOONER LEANDER ASHORE. -- Capt. Harding, of the propeller SALVOR, writes us from Mackinaw, that on the 6th inst, the Canadian schooner LEANDER's anchor chain parted, and she was driven ashore at Gros Cap. She is loaded with wheat, part of which had been taken out dry. Owing to the rough and unsteady weather, nothing could be done up to the 11th to get her off, and the wheat was at that time coming through her bottom. She will probably be a total loss.
The LEANDER was loaded by Steele & Wilkins, of this city, at Racine, with 10,000 bushels of wheat. She is a vessel of 217 tons burthen, class B 1, and is valued at $6,000. She is owned by J. Boyle, of Kingston. Vessel and cargo both fully insured in Canadian Companies. -- Chicago Press, 17th.
