      VESSEL CAPSIZED AND GREAT LOSS OF LIFE. - The schooner NEWBOULD, Capt. Maine, was capsized a few days since, on Lake Michigan, with about thirty persons on board, all lost. The NEWBOULD was on her passage from Chicago to Grand Traverse, with a full cargo of supplies for a lumbering establishment at the latter place; we understand she had eight yoke of cattle on deck.

The schooner NEWBOULD was reported by some of the western papers as capsized and all on board lost. For the benefit of those who may have friends on board, we would say that the Racine Advocate contradicts the statement. She is safe.
