SPRUNG A LEAK.
Milwaukee, April 26. -- A dispatch received here from Pentwater states that the steambarge HILTON, bound from Pentwater to Milwaukee, off Point Au Sable, and was waterlogged, and the crew were obliged to abandon her, leaving in the small boats. The belief is expressed that the HILTON sank. She was valued at $12,000, was rebuilt the past winter, and was owned by Captain Richardson, of Milwaukee.
