The schr. DAVID VANCE, bound up with coal for Chicago, went on the rocks during the fog on Zela Shoal. The wrecking tug LEVIATHAN, Capt. Char. Kirkland, went promptly to her assitance and succeeded in securing her uninjured. The VANCE is a comparitively new vessel, and one of the finest on the lakes.
