We understand that fears are entertained for the safety of the Steamer Gore on Lake Huron, with about 100 men of the Rifle Brigade on board, who were proceeding to the scene of the Indian disturbances, on Lake Superior. We have heard that during the late storm, the Gore had to put back twice for shelter, and it is supposed that she was overtaken a third time, by a violent storm. We learn that H.M.S. Mohawk, Captain Herbert, has set out from Penetanguishene, in search of the Gore, and we sincerely trust that she may be discovered with all on board in safety. [Colonist]
