      A WOE-BEGONE APPEARANCE. - The Chicago Tribune of Yesterday: "The schooner SAN JACINTO is among the arrivals. She represents a woe-begone appearance, her mainmast having been broken off close to the deck. Her cargo of corn is though to be slightly wet, and will be unloaded. She was bound to Collingwood with the cargo now in her when she met with the mishap, and her captain thought it best to return and have the cargo discharged and the damage repaired. The tug BENNETT, of Mackinaw, towed the disabled vessel up, and the SAN JACINTO's master and men were compelled to pull a yawl boat 60 miles before they obtained the tug. The BENNETT left port yesterday for Mackinaw.
