MEMORANDA---by the JAMES MADISON which let Chicago on Monday week.--we gather something of the whereabouts and condition of sail craft now absent.--The Brig MAJOR OLIVER was aground at Chicago, having loaded too heavily. An effort was made by the MADISON to pull her off but it was unsuccessful. She will probably have to discharge part of her cargo..
