MARINE DISASTERS. -- The Chicago Tribune of Tuesday, brings us the following particulars of the late gale:
The new schooner DEAN RICHMOND, bound to this port, with coal and lumber, went ashore at Racine Point, Sunday. The life-boat from Racine reached the DEAN RICHMOND. The crew would not come off, but had got their stove out on deck and appeared comfortable, expecting to get the vessel off after the storm. Her bow was well up, the stern under. It is to be hoped she will be saved.
