Mackinaw City, April 22. -- The schooner MABEL WILSON, bound down, sprung a leak on lake Michigan in Thursday's gale. The WILSON and HAWGOOD were in tow of the steamer WALDO AVERY. On account of the steering gear of the AVERY giving way, she was forced to leg go of her tow. Captain Thomas of the MABEL WILSON succeeded in getting his schooner on the west side of Fox Island, where she lies up on the beach. Wrecker FAVORITE left at 9:30 last evening to her rescue. The AVERY repaired her steering gear, picked up the HAWGOOD and passed down last evening,
