Capt. Wilcox of the schooner POLAND, was knocked overboard from that vessel drowned on Lake Michigan on her passage from Lake Michigan to this place. Capt. Wilcox was a fine man and a good sailor, he belonged to Fairport, Ohio. The POLAND came down to the Flats in charge of the mate--while aground on the Flats, she was run into by the steamer NIAGARA, and her plank on her side bent in so that they will have to come out. The damage was temporarily repaired and she proceeded to Detroit, where she stopped for suitable repairs to enable her to proceed to her port of destination.
