SCHOONER LANSING OFF. -- On Saturday evening the wrecking propeller SALVOR, Capt. Hardin, arrived in port with the schooner LANSING in tow, which she had taken off the shore at New Buffalo, whither she was driven last fall, in a heavy gale. Three steam pumps were kept working at her all the way across the lake. The propeller GEORGE NOTTER, from Milwaukee, had been at New Buffalo several days, assisting in raising and pumping her out. The LANSING was sold, as she lay ashore, to Messrs. Harrison & Co., for $500, by the Lake Navigation Company, to whom she belonged. The hull, we believe, is sound, and it will not cost over $1,500 to make her seaworthy. She is in the North Branch, being pumped out, after which she will be put in dry dock and repaired. -- Chicago Press, 4th.
