      The Milwaukee American has the following in regard to the late gale:
      The schooner INDUS got on to a rock near the entrance at Green Bay, and stove a hole in her bottom. By covering it with canvas and keeping the pumps at work, she reached this city Sunday night, and is now unloading at the dock of the M. & M. R. R. Co., with a steam pump on board, pumping her out.
      The schooner ETTA, of Green Bay, was lost in the same storm.
