      SCHOONER CATCHPOLE. - The tug S. C. IVES returned from this vessel Saturday afternoon. Capt. Vanorman, of Erie, has already made a contract to get her off for the sum of $1,000, and commenced lightering her on Friday, and it is probable that she is now afloat with cargo replaced. The master reports that as she was sailing down the lake Friday night, he saw what he supposed were lights of a vessel, also bound down, and steering so as to pass he found his vessel ploughing through the sand, and soon was in a pool inside the bar near the False Cut. The lights he saw were on the J. C. FREMONT, ashore. The CATCHPOLE is uninjured, except in her foresail, her cargo is not damaged. - Cleveland Herald
