On Sunday evening the schooners MAGNETIC and ZACH CHANDLER, ore laden for this port, was caught by the storm when about a mile out and let go their anchors. They both rode through the gale gallantly, the CHANDLER leaking badly, however. She showed a flag of distreee when the crew became exhausted at the pumps. Tug S.S. STONE went out with a fresh crew, who were hauled aboard with a rope. They succeeded in keeping the CHANDLER afloat until she was towed into the harbor on Tuesday. The CHANDLER is valued at $18,000 and insured for $14,000. She will go into drydock here for repairs. - Cleveland Report
