      The Milwaukee Sentinel of Thursday says: "The fine wrecking tug LEVIATHAN, Capt. Hart, arrived this afternoon with the schooner HUNTRESS in tow. The HUNTRESS, it will be remembered, went ashore last fall, was subsequently got off, and wintered at Beaver Harbor. The LEVIATHAN left here a week ago for North Manitou Island to get off the schooner AMERICAN REPUBLIC, but finding the latter imbedded in the ice, proceeded to Beaver Island for the HUNTRESS.
