To the schooner JENNIE MULLEN, belongs the honor of having made the first round trip between this port and Grand Haven this season. She left Chicago the 10th.inst., arriving at Grand Haven the 11th. having loaded she left that port Saturday evening and arrived at Chicago the following day, the 14th. after a stormy trip, having lost a portion of her exposed cargo of lumber and shingles and a part of her rigging. In trying to make the mouth of the River she was carried head on into the breakwater. The nose was lifted out of the water by the shock, and the captain and mate, jumped onto the breakwater. Aside from the carrying away of her headgear her timbers were badly strained and her hold began to fill with water. A tug brought her into the basin, where she lay all night.
