AFTER THE BLOW.
      THE A.G. MOREY IN TROUBLE.
      Dispatches received in Chicago yesterday announce the schooner A.G. MOREY in distress at Mackinaw City. The vessel loaded lumber at Cheboygan for Chicago. The dispatches announce her at Mackinaw City waterlogged, and asked for a tug, pump and line. The impression is that she struck some reef and has been run ashore, though no particulars are given. The PROTECTION, Captain Gray, of the V. O. T. Line, left for Mackinaw City at 11 o'clock last night, taking one of Atkins & Beckwith's steam pumps, a hawser, etc. The MOREY measured 302 tons. She classes B 1, and is valued at about $8,000
      The tug LEVIATHAN has gone to the stranded schooner BARBARIAN.
      A dispatch says the schooner GRACE MURRAY lost her anchor in the bay at Escanaba and has ordered another.
