THE LAST VESSEL IN.- The schooner City of Sheboygan, of Sheboygan, the last vessel out on the lake, has been got inside and towed to this port by the steamer Bob Hackett, arriving yesterday morning. The hull presents the appearance of having undergone rough treatment from the ice over the winter, her sides far above the waterline being made bare of any semblance of paint. As was the case with the others, her outfit, including her sails, have remained on her exposed to the weather the whole time. She is minus one anchor and chain. The schooner J. W. Sargent and barge Ontario, which are among the missing, have not been seen by any of these vessels, and their owners have abandoned all hope of their recovery. The Sheboygan has on board a cargo of coal consigned to this port.
