Alpena, September 12. -- The schooner BOSCOBEL, coal laden for the Soo, sprang a leak in the blow last night and was brought in here today. She reached the dock, when she sank to the bottom and is now full of water. her crew spent the night at the pumps and are about exhausted. Had she been compelled to remain outside much longer their boat would surely have foundered.
