      SCHOONER WANDERER NOT RESCUED. - The wrecking steamer MAGNET which left here some days since to attempt to rescue the schooner WANDERER, ashore in one of the islands in Lake Erie, returned to this port Thursday evening. The vessel was found in very bad shape and in spite of all the appliances which could be brought to bear upon her it was impossible to effect her release. The report that she had broken her back in two had no truth in it. Large holes however have been made in her hull, and unusual means will have to be resorted to get her afloat. - Detroit Post.
