Milwaukee, Sept. 26. -- The tug WELCOME arrived here today with the schooner CHRIS GROVER, which she released from the beach in Sister Bay on Friday last. In appearance the vessel does not seem to be seriously injured, and she leaks very slightly. Her bottom, however, is thought to be in bad shape. She will be docked tomorrow.
