LOST OVERBOARD. - The Detroit Free Press of Wednesday, says:
      On Monday morning, the 21st, a man by the name of W.F. Jones, second mate of the schooner A.G. MOREY, was lost overboard, while on the passage from Buffalo to Chicago, about twenty miles below Point au Pelee. He was knocked overboard by the swinging of the main boom, and owing to the darkness and a very high sea which was running at the time, all attempt to save the life of the unfortunate man were in vain. Mr. Jones was a native of East Troy, N.Y., about 28 years of age, and unmarried. The captain of the schooner wished us to say that he would leave what effect he possessed at the office of Irving and Narig, No. 9, Board of Trade, Chicago, where his friends can obtain them.
