      SPRUNK A LEAK. - The Milwaukee Sentinel of Monday says: The propeller
CHICAGO, which left here on Friday for Buffalo, returned on Saturday morning,
having sprung a leak. She was immediately taken into Wolf & Lawrence's dry dock
for repairs, and is no doubt, ere this, again on her way down the lakes. She is
loaded with flour and grain from Chicago, which has sustained but little damage
