      Crew Of The Schooner Reaches Port, Being Saved In A Yawl Boat.
      Milwaukee, Wis., Aug. 21. -- The crew of the schooner EMMA BOONER, bound from Manistee to this city with bark, has arrived here and reports that the vessel capsized in the lake, 15 miles off Little Point Sauble last Wednesday night. The crew escaped in a yawl boat and drifted about for 22 hours in a heavy sea. They then sighted the steamer FRED PABST, which took them to a port. They were 36 hours without food.

From Capt. Saunders of the steamer MARK B. COVELL the Wisconsin learns that early Sunday evening, the capsized schooner EMMA BANNER drifted to within a short distance of the beach about one and a half miles south of Manistee harbor piers. Monday morning the tug IRMA L. WHEELER got a line to the craft, towed her into Manistee harbor, and then righted her. Capt. Saunders reports the BANNER partially dismasted. Her deck appears to be gone, and she presents a dilapidated appearance generally. No effort has been made to free her of water.
