Full Text

Chicago.---Friday night last there was a heavy gale from the northeast which caused a big sea, and many vessels suffered thereby. Schooner DRIVER, with lumber from Muskegon, arrived in tow of a tug with her hold full of water.. The schooner EMMA C. HUTCHISON when entering the harbor in tow of a tug, parted her tow line, drifted down onto a barge and had her jibboom and foremast carried away. The schooner DAVID VANCE swung across the river when towing up and collided with the schooner WALLULA and carried away the latter jibboom and fore-topmast.
