AN EXPLANATION. - A few days since the Chicago Republican published a statement relative to the sinking of the schooner Thornton, which cast a poor reflection on her owners. The Cleveland Dealer pronounces the same as "untrue in all its many statements." It adds, "The schooner Thornton sailed from Marquette in good seaworthy condition on the 21st of August last, with a cargo of iron ore, and when on Lake Huron, on the night of the 26th, encountered a heavy gale. Although efforts were made to save the vessel and cargo, she foundered and went down about ten miles south by east from the town of Detour."
