The steam tug LEVIATHAN, Capt. Hart, arrived from Mackinaw yesterday morning, with the schooner MILWAUKEE BELLE in tow. The latter, it will be remembered, went ashore in Sheboygan Bay, opposite Mackinaw, in the tremendous gale of last November. The vessel was kept afloat by means of canvas stretched under her bow, and two pumps working on board. -- Milwaukee Sentinel
