Cheboygan, Aug. 27. - The schooner MICHIGAN, in tow of the tug OWEN, sprung a leak in Lake Huron yesterday without any known cause, and despite the efforts of the crew at the pumps, was gradually sinking. She was towed into harbor last night and beached near the pier to save her. The LEVIATHAN put steam pumps on board toway and the tug OWEN tows her to Chicago.

      Cheboygan, Aug. 28. - The schooner MICHIGAN had nine feet of water in her hold before the steam pump got to work last night. A great loss was averted by running the vessel ashore, or she certainly would have sunk in a short time in deep water.

      Cheboygan, Aug. 30. - Before the schooner MICHIGAN reached South Manitous she began to make water so that the steam pump could not keep her clear. The LEVIATHAN left last night with another pump and will tow her to Chicago.

      Mackinaw City, Sept. 1. - The tug LEVIATHAN returned today from the schooner MICHIGAN. Her captain reports that they had got a jacket under the MICHIGAN when he got there so that the steam pump kept her free and another one was not needed.
