VESSEL SUNK.---The propeller ILLINOIS came into port Tuesday evening, towing two
schooners lashed together. They were the E.H. GREY and H.N. GATES, both lumber vessels, belonging to Capt. Sims, of Chicago. The GATES got ashore at Pere Marquette, and the GREY went to her assistance. She was got off, then capsized was righted, lashed to the GREY and the two were making their way for this port when the ILLINOIS fell in with and took them in tow. Soon after arriving here, the GATES filled and sunk, near the mouth of the river, partly blocking the channel.-------Milwaukee Sentinel
