Intelligence reached the harbor (Chicago) that two vessels were lying a short distance down the lake, one of them with the flag of distress flying. They had been at anchor most of Thursday and all the morning yesterday. Tugs were sent out in the afternoon, and brought them in. . . . The other was the WINONA, which we believe had been ashore at the foot of the lake.
