MARINE DISASTERS. -- The Chicago Tribune of Tuesday, brings us the following particulars of the late gale:
We yesterday reported the brig JULIA DEAN ashore at Skilllagalle. She is owned by B.S. Shepard of this city, and is worth some $20,000 -- insured we understand, in the Ocean and Atlas Companies, besides $17,000 insurance on her cargo in the Chicago Mutual.
Brig RACINE, owned by Taylor & Pendleton of Racine, and uninsured, was capsized and lost. The crew of the brig RACINE, eight in number, were picked up Northeast of Milwaukee, Sunday, by the brig HUTCHINSON, and brought to this city. They had been clinging to the bottom of the vessel without food for near twenty-four hours, and would have perished in an hour longer. Four of them were nearly gone when found, the captain keeping them awake by the greatest exertion.
