Southport.---The ore-laden schooner LEONARD HANNA, ashore on the North Fox Island, will probably prove a total loss. The tug LEVIATHAN, which was sent to the wreck, arrived here, and reports the vessel in bad shape. She is full of water, and has pounded so heavily that she is hogged about two feet. Owing to the heavy sea that is running the LEVIATHAN was unable to even attempt to release her. The captain of the LEVIATHAN does not expect to save the vessel. She will probablybe abandoned.
