. . . . .
The propeller ORIENTAL, Captain Briggs, about the safety of which serious
apprehensions had been entertained for several days, arrived on Sunday night, in
tow of the propeller POTOMAC. The ORIENTAL was due here about the middle
of last week, and her non-arrival gave rise to fears that she had been wrecked or
disabled, in the recent gale. She broke her crank during the heavy blow of last
week, but rode out the storm in safety at the Manitous, from whence she was
towed to this port by the POTOMAC. The ORIENTAL had a large cargo of
merchandise on board, 100 tons of which was for Milwaukee, some for Racine, and
a large portion for Chicago. The damage to her machinery will soon be repaired
here when she will proceed on her way. - Milwaukee Sentinel.
