DISASTERS. - During the storm of Wednesday night the scow SWEEPER, laden with tanbark, sprung a leak. The pumps were kept in operation until the crew were entirely worn out, when the captain decided to beach her. He accordingly headed her for shore, and she struck near Waukegan, where she was abandoned. The tug LOTTIE DOLE went after her and brought her into port. She is badly shaken, and full of water. - Chicago Rep., 22nd.
