SCHOONER MONTEZUMA SUNK. - We learn from a private despatch, received this
A.M., that the schooner MONTEZUMA, loaded with 16,300 bushels corn, consigned to
M.L. Crittenden, of this city, sunk on the passage down, when off Saginaw City.
No particulars given.

      SUNK. - Intelligence was received at Chicago Friday night that the schooner
MONTEZUMA, under command of Captain Mills, grain loaded from that city, collided
with the schooner HATTIE HOWARD, in Saginaw Bay, on Tuesday night, and had sunk
her crew escaping to the shore in boats. The MONTEZUMA is sunk in deep water
and will probably prove a total loss. She is valued at about $14,000, and both
hull and cargo are pretty well insured.
