The repairs on the schooner GEORGE SHERMAN, at present in Smith's dry-dock, will not be nearly so much as at first calculated, and will scarcely exceed $4,000 or $5,000, which may be considered very light, for we believe that this is the only vessel that ever came off Dead Man's Shoal on Grand Island. -- Cleveland Plain Dealer.
