      DISABLED. - The schooner FLYING CLOUD arrived down last evening from
Chicago in a disabled condition. When near Skillagallee on her passage down, she
was run into by some unknown bark during a snow storm, carrying away her jibboom,
bowsprit and head-gear and a portion of her stem. The bark put back to Beaver
Harbor with a loss of her mainsail besides other damage. The CLOUD repairs here
which will probably detain her same 24 hours. - Detroit Free Press.
