The prop. MICHIGAN, which touched here yesterday from Chicago, brought the Captain (Paterson) and crew of the prop. OLIVER CROMWELL, which had been run into and sunk by some unknown vessel, near Middle Island. The stern of the CROMWELL was almost entirelt carried away; and the crew barely time to escape by the small boats before she went down. She was owned by Walker & Berry of Kingston, and was bound from Chicago with a full load of flour and grain for Montreal. The vessel with which she collided was bound up, and it was during a dense fog that the disaster occurred. The CROMWELL was valued at $19,000.
