      AN OLD VESSEL GONE.
      At Chicago yesterday the old schooner TEMPEST, which had been dismantled and allowed to remain idle for a period of ten years or more, was towed out into the lake by one of the Dunham line tugs and sunk. The TEMPEST was built at Racine by Gibson in 1848. She came out originally as a fore-and-after, but in 1869 was rebuilt, lengthened and given a mizzenmast. The measurement of the craft in enlarged form was 156 net tons.
