The barge Regina in tow of the tug Thompson arrived from Chicago yesterday. About a week ago this craft sprung a leak on Lake Michigan and had to enter Ludington harbor, about 125 miles this side of Chicago. The hole was in the forward part of the vessel.

Gaskin said, this morning, that if that was so there must be something wonderful about the waters of Lake Michigan, as the vessel only had about ten bushels of damaged grain in her when she arrived here.
