      A LOST SCHOONER FOUND.---We learn from the Milwaukee Sentinel, that the schooner TRIBUNE, which was lost a year ago last April, and nothing known of her fate has been recently discovered sunk, near the North West Point of Great Traverse Bay in 70 or 80 feet of water. Her rigging having broken loose, some of it floats at the surface of the water. There being no lighthouse in that vicinity, she struck on a dangerous reef of rocks there, all on board perishing. The Indians say that a child floated ashore which they buried.
