SINKING OF A SCHOONER. - Yesterday afternoon, as the schooner WINFIELD SCOTT was entering the harbor, loaded with iron ore, she struck a stone on the bottom of the river, near the East Pier. Although considerably injured she managed to reach Stockwell's dock, where she soon afterwards sunk.
      The schooner COMELY, in leaving the harbor this morning, in tow of the LEVI JOHNSON, ran into the sunken schooner WIMFIELD SCOTT, while dodging the scow MAINE, and carried away several yards of the SCOTT. - Cleveland Plain Dealer, 22nd.
