It was reported along the docks yesterday that the schooner A. RUST had been pulled off of Poverty Island. The rumor could not be traced to any reliable source, and Capt. S.B. Grummond was inclined to discredit the report, as he had received no such information from the tug WINSLOW, which he sent to the assistance of the RUST. The propeller FAVORITE, Capt. T.S. Hutchinson, which arrived at Chicago Monday from Menominee, passed Pilot Island at 5 o'clock on Saturday evening and reports the schooner A. RUST in such a position that her keel was almost visible.
