Full Text

SCHOONER DISABLED. -- The schooner CURLEW was disabled Wednesday morning, at the mouth of the harbor in Chicago. The tug towing her out, cast her off too soon, and she drifted to the pier, driving her anchor, which was hanging from her cat-heads, through her front bow, just above light water line. She was taken up the North branch for repairs.
