CAPT. BROWN RETURNED. - Capt. H. L. Brown, of Scott & Brown, who left here a few days since for Sleeping Bear to investigate concerning the loss of the schooner Wm. Sanderson, has just returned from that place. The vessel, broken up into fragments, was found strewn along the beach for quite a distance, besides portions of her cargo. The bodies of none of her crew has come ashore, and it is quite probable that they were swept from the decks some distance from shore. There is a bar out from shore on which the vessel struck, causing her to break up and become a total wreck in a few moments. Before leaving there Captain Brown employed a watch to be kept along the coast in the event of the bodies coming ashore, that they may receive proper interment.
