Chicago, May 23. -- Every boat arriving today has been boarded for information regarding the missing schooner LEM ELLSWORTH, but no trace of the boat can be gleamed since she passed Mackinaw, eight days ago. It is growing to be a certainty that the schooner foundered with all hands in last week's gale.
