Milwaukee, Wis., July 18. -- The schooner PAULINE, Muskegon for Chicago with lumber, sprung a bad leak outside on Wednesday. She obtained a couple of men from the schooner SILVER to help pump, and managed to keep afloat until her arrival here, when she was allowed to go down in shoal water.

The schooner PAULINE, lumber-loaded from Muskegon for Chicago, sprung a bad leak about noon on Wednesday, and would undoubtedly have waterlogged had not the schooner G. L. SEAVER, with which she fell in company, sent aboard two of her crew to assist at the pumps. After being reinforced the PAULINE was headed for this port, arrived at midnight. She was immediately towed into shoal water opposite Messrs. Wolf & Davidson's shipyard, and allowed to settle upon the bottom. It had not been decided up to last evening whether to place a steam pump in position and proceed to Chicago or make necessary repairs here. -- Milwaukee Sentinel, 19th.

      The cargo of lumber on board the schooner PAULINE, which arrived at Milwaukee leaking, has been disposed of, and her owner has made arrangements to have her leak stopped at Wolf & Davidson's drydock as soon as she is unloaded.
