p.2 Effects Of A Gale On The Upper Lake - The Chicago Journal of Saturday evening has the following items:-

Since yesterday there have been a large number of Lower Lake vessels. Quite a number of the gallant craft bear marks of the hard usage of their trip. From the lumber regions we learn that the schooners Eno, Twin Brothers, Lizzie Throup and Ellen Stewart, which went ashore early in the week on the north bar at Grand Haven, had not been got off up to Thursday, although all could easily be got afloat with the exception of the Ellen Stewart, of and from this city to Grand Haven with 120 tons of iron. Her main-mast was gone by the board, and her hull was breaking up. She will be a total loss. She was owned by A. Covert, Esq., of this city, and is insured for $3,000. The Twin Brother is reported full of water.

The schooner Three Bells, with a cargo of railroad iron, attempted to enter the harbor between 7 and 8 o'clock yesterday morning, but grounded on the bar near the North Pier. By the aid of her canvass and hawsers, she got off after an hour of hard work, having experienced no damage except chafing against the pier.

A schooner, name unknown, is ashore on Windmill reef, between the lighthouse and Fort Erie.
