      From a letter received by Capt. John Prindiville, of this city on Monday last from the lighthouse keeper at Pilot Harbor, we learn that the schooner DAVID STEWART, which went ashore on Pilot Island last fall, is from all appearances, in as good condition as when the wrecking party left, in December, save that she is buried in ice, and is swung a trifle further to the east.----Chicago Tribune
