Cheboygan.---The schooner ORKNEY LASS was picked up in the Straits and towed to Duncan City Monday evening, where she will receive thorough repairs. The vessel was not leaking, but her spars, rigging, and sails are entirely gone, and her bulwarks are broken up. Part of her deck load of cedar was lost. The damage will amount to about $3,500. The crew say it is a miracle they escaped with their lives.
