The Lake Navigation Company's schooner MINNIE KINNE, on her way from Chicago to Buffalo, with a cargo of oats, is hard ashore on South Manitou. She is leaking, but can be kept free by the vigorous use of her pumps, and the prospect is good for saving her unless a heavy south wind should chance to set in, in which event the prospect would be dark.
