      The scow RESTLESS of Racine tried to enter Ludington on the 7th inst. but missed the piers and went ashore among the ice banks. The wind was blowing hard from the west and she was soon covered with ice. Most of the cargo was saved in a damaged condition but the vessel is supposed to be a total wreck.
