CLEOPATRA Schooner. Milwaukee May 24:- The Schooner CLEOPATRA, bound in from Badenoque ?,during the gale of Thursday night, was making good headway towards the piers, and would have come in handsomely if the light had been in it's place, but owing to the inexcusable neglect, if not worse, of the person in charge, who hung the light inside, the captain was misled. He steered for the light; and found himself brought up all standing, north of the piers. Where lies the vessel, pounding badly. There is an insurance of $2,000 on the vessel in the Merchants Mutual of this city.
