It is reported that the scow NANCY DELL ashore at Sheboygan, is bilged and will prove a total loss. The schooner J. O. THAYER, ashore at the same place is also said to be in worse shape than anticipated and her rescue is considered a matter of doubt.

A Sheboygan dispatch to the Milwaukee Sentinel; The Boston Marine Insurance Company has sold the stranded schooner NANCY DELL to John Miller and Andrew Gaudman, of Sheboygan, and work has commenced on her this morning. They intend hauling her out on the beach where she now lies, have all necessary repairs made during the winter, and by the aid of a tug launch her off the beach in the spring. The undertaking looks feasible.
