SCHOONER HUTCHISON GOES TO THE BOTTOM.
Sault Ste. Marie, Aug. 18. - The schooner JOHN M. HUTCHISON, in tow of the steamer CALEDONIA, foundered off Keweenaw Point, Lake Superior, yesterday afternoon. The crew were successfully taken off by the CALEDONIA and arrived early today. The HUTCHISON began to fill about 4 o'clock in the morning, while coming down Lake Superior, and the water soon got the better of her pumps. After a long struggle, the vessel went to the bottom after being abandoned by her crew. The lost boat was owned by James Corrigan of Cleveland, and was built in 1873. She measured 980 tons. Her insurance valuation was $10,000.
