      The schooner RETURN, bound from Chicago to Buffalo with a cargo of wheat,
put into this port on Sunday, with her rigging considerably injured. She was also
leaking some, but her cargo was not materially damaged. As soon as her canvas
is repaired and the leak made good, she will continue on her way to Buffalo. The
RETURN left Chicago on Wednesday last and had reached the Manitous, when
the gale overtook her. - Milwaukee Sentinel.
