On Thursday the Revenue Cutter ANDREW JOHNSON proceeded to Racine North Point from Milwaukee, and with the assistance of the tug WETZEL, pulled the schooner GERTRUDE off the beach. The tug then towed her into shoal water in the harbor at Racine, where she sank. It is proposed to haul her out at once for repairs.
