      The schooner "76", was driven ashore near Sheboygan, with a cargo of nearly 200.000 feet of lumber, bound for Chicago. It is thought that she will be got off without damage. The schooner WELLAND had both masts carried away by a single gust of wind, leaving her an unmanageable wreck; in which condition she drifted some 6 or 8 hours, until the propeller REPUBLIC picked her up and towed her into Mackinac- Detroit Free Press- Nov. 15.
