Full Text

The Chicago Press says: "We learn from Capt. Anderson, Marine Inspector, that the schooner OSTRICH, which went ashore a few days since at Waukegan, and which was high and dry on the beach, has been got off and was brought into port yesterday. Capt. Anderson got her off and into this port without the aid of a tug. She is not injured to any extent, but must go into dry dock to examine her bottom. The schooner was light, and was insured in the Phoenix, and Kings County Insurance companies."
