On the 25th. inst., at 4 o'clock the schooner CUYAHOGA, of Chicago, with a cargo of railroad ties and cordwood, sprung a leak off Glencoe. During four hours the water gained two feet with all the pumps at work. After tacking several times she came to anchor off Winnetka 9:30 a.m. The leak was found and partly closed. A signal of distress was hoisted, which was soon discovered by the Evanston Life Saving crew. Captain Lawson, before launching the surf boat, telegraphed to the Vessel Owner's Tug Company to send a tug to the relief of the vessel. After a pull of four miles the file crew reached the schooner and found her in the condition above stated. At 2 p.m. the tug UNION reached the CUYAHOGA and towed her to Chicago. - Evanston Report
